What a beautiful orb-weaver! This looks like Neogea nocticolor. I’ll make a page for it later today.

Indeed, stunning.

I’m not sure what you’re asking. Are you asking me to add Indonesia to this website? This website only accounts for locations it has received submissions from, your submission is the only one so far so only India would be listed here. I’m volunteering here and it would be too much to go through and fill out the range info for every species, that information is obtainable via the World Spider Catalog (https://wsc.nmbe.ch/).

There is a fair amount of information on this species. For example, have a look at:
https://indiabiodiversity.org/species/show/273236
http://www.natureloveyou.sg/Minibeast-Spider/Neogea%20nocticolor/Main.html
Herbert Levi revised this genus in 1983 (See: https://wsc.nmbe.ch/reference/5760) so you may find additional information under some of the older names for the species.

The Wikipedia article on the genus is a “stub,” which means that nobody has written out a complete referenced article for Wikipedia yet. So, yes Wikipedia is incomplete. India uses the same form of Google as U.S. and Canada. Note: do NOT search “google india” it leads to obnoxious pop-up warnings that are hard to get rid of. According to the New York Times, India doesn’t have its own search engine. The American Google is translated to other languages.
