Cost of Shared Azure Web Hosting?

    Question

  • I switched from a Web site to a "shared" web site because it said I had to for making a CName work.

    It said there would be a billing implication.  What is the billing implication? I thought web sites were still beta?

    Thanks

  • He is the details about Shared Websites, I took it from the site [http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/pricing/details/#header-1]

    Shared Instance Model

    The shared instance model provides support for custom domain names, 1 GB of storage, and unlimited outbound data transfer charged on the terms of your Windows Azure subscription at the standard Pay-As-You-Go rates. Up to three instances per Web site may be deployed at an additional cost.

    Under the shared instance model, you will receive the following benefits:

    • The ability to assign your custom host or domain name
    • Outbound traffic charged at Pay-As-You-Go rates; unlimited inbound data transfer
    • 1 GB storage (shared by all sites)
    • 20 MB of a third-party, MySQL database

    Each Web site operated under the shared instance model will be charged at $0.02 / hour (approx. $14.40  / month) per Web Site instance at general availability. During preview, a 33% discount will be applied for an effective monthly rate of $9.60 / month, per Web Site instance. During preview, all paid shared instance hours will be billed using the current Cloud Services small compute meter, except we will emit 1/9th of the Cloud Services small compute hours to deliver the discounted pricing of $9.60 / month per Web Site instance. The monthly calculation per paid shared Web Site instance is as follows: 720 hours * 1/9 * $0.12 =$9.60.

    As your web site traffic grows, you can seamlessly upgrade to the reserved-instance model with private virtual machine instances dedicated solely to your apps.

    Hope that helps
