How would you set hosting package price?. I seen some where with very low price with same package and few places with high price.

Compare webspace against bandwidth.
That should be enough for you to judge the package pricing.

Many factors go into pricing - first of all you have to make sure it doesn't cause you to make a loss. Calculate (or estimate) what each plan costs you, after processing fees, server costs, support costs etc...
Also note what market your aiming for and try to fit their budget and requirements.

I agree with eHostSpace and mz-elliot. Make sure you include your credit card processing fees, fees for running your office, phone lines, support costs, salaries and etc. You want to make money, but also be able to cover all your costs. Don't oversell everything SOOOO much to where you can't keep up. Yes you can sell accounts for $5 and offer a ton of space and bandwidth, but is it reasonable? Figure out how much you are paying per meg of space, how much per meg of traffic, per gig if traffice and etc. Base your prices off of this. Try to cover all your costs. Also figure in your advertising costs and more.

Setting prices to where you will survive is more important than going cheap and putting yourself in the whole. A good server can handle a lot of stuff if run properly. A good server can't handle 80 million $0.50 accounts that over load it.
Just come up with the best ratio of space/bandwidth/costs that helps you make it to running in the black.Kris

Package pricing is always depended on you. You need to figure out how much storage and bandwidth you are allowed per month.
Then you need to find out how many of these packages you need to survive and break even.
After that, you just need to make sure you know what you are doing as far as business wise and have a business plan to back it up.
