Is it possible to limit cost for services? RRS feed

    Hello AzureSupport. 

    I have been working as a software engineer for several years now. 
    I have been trying to do some development on Azure hosted WebAPI with SQL DB in my personal time. 
    However I am very confused with the pricing for these Azure services. 

    I would like to publish a Web API project to the Azure cloud platform with a small sql DB.
    I would like to develop both the Web API project & the sql DB once they are published to the Azure platform. 
    This would allow me to use the endpoints for the mobile front-end of my project which I would find very useful for developing.

    I would be the only person making calls to the service during the time it is published. 
    I would be calling the service in order to test my development. 

    Is it possible to limit the cost of these services
    - maybe I could prepay using credits (which I have seen before for bizSpark customers) ? 
    - or could I set a limit on the monthly charge ? 

    My fear is that my personal project might result in my receiving a first bill amounting to hundreds of Euro. 

    I would very much appreciate your help. 
    Thank you in advance. 


    Mark Jones.
