App Service pricing

Create web and mobile apps for any platform

Azure App Service brings together everything you need to create websites, mobile back-ends and web APIs for any platform or device. Free, Shared (preview) and Basic plans provide different options to test your apps within your budget. Standard and Premium plans are for production workloads and run on dedicated virtual machine instances. Each instance can support multiple applications and domains. The Isolated plan hosts your apps in a private, dedicated Azure environment and is ideal for apps that require secure connections with your on-premises network, or additional performance and scale.
