  1. I must admit it is good and easy to deploy using Azure environment, the problem is they are very expensive. I can't afford it. But for big company that looking for easy deployment, can go ahead with Azure. If you only have small or medium site, I believe that shared hosting should be enough, unless you can pay the fee. I migrated to Asphostportal.com because I can't afford paying Azure.

  2. This is helpful. I'm using free hosting at Kimservers website (you can google it and check the link at the top), been great so far.

  3. when I try to sign in it tells me I need a subscription.
    When I try and get a subscription is asks for a payment method, even though I have selected the free trail. do they take any money?
    also, is there still a free website hosting plan?
