Easily create a low-cost WordPress blog on Azure

Developer Support

Premier Dev Consultant Mark Taylor demonstrates how to easily setup your own WordPress blog using Azure.

These directions apply if you want to create a personal blog which is hosted on someone else’s domain, and that won’t get a lot of traffic, and you want to do this cheaply. Azure has the ability to host websites in a shared model which (at the time of this writing) is around $9.50 a month. If your not sure if this shared plan will suffice for your needs, you can check out https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/app-service/plans/. If there is any doubt though, you probably need something bigger.
