Azure Web Overview

Microsoft Azure Websites is a cloud computing platform for hosting Websites and Web Applications. It is offered as a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and allows publishing Web apps running on multiple frameworks and written in different programming languages. Azure Websites eliminates the need to manage the physical hardware, and also provides several scaling options. It provides a single, integrated hosting environment to develop, test and run your web apps in an enterprise- class cloud service.

Azure Websites supports popular programming languages like .NET,Java, PHP, Node.js, and Python. The Azure Websites gallery also contains many third-party applications, such as Drupal, WordPress, Umbraco and Joomla, as well as development frameworks such as Django and CakePHP.

TESTING AND STAGING ENVIRONMENTS

Create multiple private testing and staging environments for your web apps. Use them to perform testing before you deploy. Swap to production with no downtime. Web apps are pre-loaded ensuring the best customer experience.

USE YOUR OWN DOMAIN

Azure Websites allows you to bring your own domain and SSL Certificates. You can use any DNS domain with your web app. You can also use a custom IP and SNI based SSL, including wildcards.
