Hi Arun,

While searching for "sandbox" in the developer edition's setup search, it did not show any results for sandboxes. However, it has been clearly mentioned in salesforce.com webpages as "Developer Edition is a special development license that does not allow the conversion to production. The same is true for Sandbox. You cannot upgrade Sandbox, but you can purchase additional or different types of Sandbox if you have Enterprise, Unlimited or Force.com Edition." Also, one has to purchase licenses for each Sandbox types such as full,partial copy,developer pro and developer. Please refer the below sites:
