App Service pricing

Quickly create powerful cloud apps for web and mobile

App Service brings together everything you need to create websites, web APIs for any platform or device. Our Free and Shared (preview) plans are ideal for testing applications in a managed Azure environment. Basic, 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 plans host your apps in a private, dedicated Azure environment and are ideal for apps that require secure connections with your on-premise network. And now in preview, you can run Linux Web Apps on pre-provisioned Kubernetes clusters in Azure Kubernetes Service or on Arc-enabled clusters on-premises and in other clouds.

Prices are estimates only and are not intended as actual price quotes. Actual pricing may vary depending on the type of agreement entered with Microsoft, date of purchase, and the currency exchange rate. Prices are calculated based on US dollars and converted using London closing spot rates that are captured in the two business days prior to the last business day of the previous month end. If the two business days prior to the end of the month fall on a bank holiday in major markets, the rate setting day is generally the day immediately preceding the two business days. This rate applies to all transactions during the upcoming month. Sign in to the Azure pricing calculator to see pricing based on your current program/offer with Microsoft. Contact an Azure sales specialist for more information on pricing or to request a price quote. See frequently asked questions about Azure pricing.

Free and Shared

The Free and Shared (preview) service plans are base tiers that run on the same Azure VMs as other apps. Some apps may belong to other customers. These tiers are intended to be used only for development and testing purposes. There is no SLA provided for Free and Shared service plans. Free and Shared plans are metered on a per App basis.

Price for Shared (preview) plan reflects a preview discount.

*At launch of Azure savings plan for compute, the 3-year and 1-year savings plans will have a temporary price reduction for the Windows version of our Premium v3 plans. On January 1, 2023, the price will increase to the normal savings plan pricing. The pricing for Linux will not change. See the expected pricing as of January 1, 2023.

Isolated Service Plan

The Isolated service plan is designed to run mission critical workloads, that are required to run in a virtual network. The Isolated plan allows customers to run their apps in a private, dedicated environment in an Azure datacenter. The private environment used with an Isolated plan is called the App Service Environment v2. The plan can scale to 100 instances. You can find more details on the Isolated plan and App Service Environment v2. In addition to the price per Isolated plan instance there is also a flat Stamp Fee for each App Service Environment of $-/hour(~$-/month).

Isolated v2 Service Plan

Our upgraded Isolated plan, Isolated v2, has been optimized for workloads requiring resource isolation, maximum scalability, and advanced networking features. Isolated v2 allows customers to run their apps in a private, dedicated environment in an Azure datacenter. Isolated v2 plans have significant faster scaling times and can scale to 100 instances with a total of 200 instances across plans. The private environment used with an Isolated v2 plan is called the App Service Environment v3, a single tenant install of Azure App Service that runs in your virtual network with no public internet dependencies and simplified networking configuration experience. An App Service Environment v3 has the option of running in zone redundant mode across Availability Zones within a region. With Isolated v2 we have also eliminated the Stamp Fee and introduced one and three year Reserved Instance pricing - see billing documentation for more details.

  • Yes. Rates listed apply to apps in stopped state. Please delete apps that are not in use or update tier to Free to avoid charges.

  • Yes, App Service (using domain) provides SSL connections for all URLs under the '' domain at no additional charge. Securely access your Website at https://{mysite}

  • No. SSL Connections for custom domains enables the ability to add your own SSL certificate for use with App / website. Both self-signed and third-party certificate authority certificates are supported.

  • Yes. However, please note that SSL Connections for each certificate is billed separately. We also support SAN/UC certificates, which allow you to secure multiple domains with a single SSL certificate.

  • App Service offerings include access to a free 20mb SQL database for 12 months. After 12 months, the free SQL Database converts to a paid basic SQL subscription. If you choose not to use SQL with App Service then the paid basic subscription is not required after 12 months.

  • Except for Free tier, an App Service plan carries a charge on the compute resources it uses. In the Shared tier, each app receives a quota of CPU minutes, so each app is charged for the CPU quota. In the dedicated compute tiers (Basic, Standard, Premium, PremiumV2, PremiumV3), the App Service plan defines the number of VM instances the apps are scaled to, so each VM instance in the App Service plan is charged. These VM instances are charged the same regardless how many apps are running on them. To avoid unexpected charges, see Clean up an App Service plan. In the Isolated tier, the App Service Environment defines the number of isolated workers that run your apps, and each worker is charged. In addition, there's a flat Stamp Fee for the running the App Service Environment itself.
