tapanila.netThis is a crosspost from our very own Teemu Tapanila’s blog. And here’s the original.

Azure Websites is very easy way to get started very fast on creating a website.
Azure subscriptions come with 10 free web sites on shared platform.
It’s currently in a beta phase but atleast for me it has been working perfectly.
So here’s a guide how to get started.

  1. Login to Azure Dashboard
  2. Choose websites from left
  3. Click new from bottom left, choose Quick Create, type in your url and click Create Web Site
  4. After that your website is up and running
  5. Now open your website settings from Azure Dashboard by clicking the name of it
  6.  You can use either TFS, Github, FTP or Visual Studio to deploy the website. I chose VS
  7.  Now create your new website project on Visual Studio. Remember tho choose .NET Framework 4
  8. Choose Internet Application
  9. Right click your project and choose publish
  10.  Choose import and then browse to the file you downloaded from Azure Dashboard
  11. Now just click publish
  12. Enjoy your cool website
