Creating a new web hosting plan
You can create a new web hosting plan when you create a new website using the management portal. In the new Website blade, click the Web Hosting Plan setting to pick the web hosting plan that you want. The Pricing tier blade does a wonderful job showing all the web hosting plans available, the feature differences, and even the estimated monthly costs for each plan. After you have selected the plan you want, give the web hosting plan a name, and it will be saved as you continue through the process of creating the website. Figure 1 shows the Standard tier plans.

Figure 2 shows the Basic tier plans. Notice that features such as Autoscale, Backup, Staging slots, and Traffic Manager are not part of the Basic plans.

Figure 3 shows the Free and Shared plans. As you can see, these are bare essential plans at little to no cost. This is a fantastic option for websites early in the development lifecycle phase. As the website needs grow, you can move it to another web hosting plan that offers the features and capacity needed.

It is not possible to create a new empty web hosting plan. Web hosting plans are created during website creation.
