It requires more facts and reference of the contract/terms entered into with the parties involved therein to answer your queries precisely, like - Location of the supplier of Services, Who are the recipients, location of such recipients whether within India/Outside India.

However, based on certain assumptions and factors following guidance is being provided:

Q 1. Is GST leviable on consideration received -

Yes, if the Website running in India exceeds the turnover threshold limit. In case the owner of the website is from outside India and such website is accessed by unregistered persons in India then yes it would get covered under compulsory registration u/s 24 irrespective of your turnover and thereby GST has to be paid on such supplies.

Q2. To decide whether it is an export of service or not.

Refer to the conditions specified in Section 2(6) of IGST Act 2017 - i.e., Location of Service Provider to be in India, Location of Service Recipient to be outside India, Place of supply to be outside India (For OIDAR - refer provisions of s.13(12) of IGST Act). The other two conditions are seems to be satisfied in your given facts.
