-We have an website with following links in our office network:

  Lan URL:       http://192.168.0.1

 Wan URL:      http://hello.abc.com


 - The above website is hosted in a server which is within our office network.

Now if all the computers in the local network use  the above  WAN Link to use the website,
  does it use our Internet bandwidth ?

  (or)

 Since the server is within our network, either links will not use our internet bandwidth ?

Not if there are no references to external data in the web pages.

There are no references to the external data.

Everything is within the local server

Then when the intranet is accessed, traffic will stay inside the network.

If accessed from via a public URL from the Internet, then you will have upstream traffic.
