I wanted to start a website with domain name extension .hosting but when checked with name.com, its price was $299 for a year and with namesilo.com, it was $329 / year. Why .hosting is so expensive over other domain extensions? any reasons?

Because they know exactly that .hosting will use hosting companies, as because it's for companies everything should be expensive :) (JOKE) i don't know really, whatever is the reason, no company will use .hosting extension for their own website as it's too long.

The price these companies gave you is absolutely insane. As I check now in our system it is marked around 92.39 $. A promo is running on for around 14.95$ and a renew price of 92.39$. We are not offering it directly on our page due to the low demand but get in touch with us if you are interested.

Yeah, some domains can be terribly expensive because they cater to a particular niche or category. Domain name pricing has gotten really out of bounds now. I think this is how they market domains saying they are 'search engine friendly'. The problem with this pricing is that no new player in the hosting space will buy a domain name with .Hosting because firstly they have to afford renewals also going ahead. They might go with an economic domain name provider like BigRock to get a .COM domain. Speaking of which you might find a lot of players that are going for .IO and the likes. Only a matter of time when they will be exorbitant.

Perhaps they're trying to attract established hosts and filter out noobs who host their servers in the parents' basement? Also a way to keep all sorts of scammers and cybercriminals at bay. I don't think it's a correct approach but maybe that's the idea behind it... luxury domain name like you know Louis Vuitton of TLDs or something ;)

Main reason is .hosting has many free names . You can wait few years and price will be lower . Now you can use .host

This is the beginning towards free hosting techniques. To host it without spending too much money, by just paying only for static domain and make server at home. That will give more storage database, better indexing,cost effective and security also.
