The cost of maintaining Home Office websites (i.e. hosting, licensing, domain registration, and updates, but excluding staff costs) has been as follows:

2006-07 750,100
2007-08 620,000
2008-09 577,000

Prior to 2006, costs were embedded in other communications budgets and could not be separately extracted, other than at disproportionate cost.
