    Hi, I myself am entirely new to azure and am looking at it for a project at a company I work for. 

    The plan was to build an ASP.Net website using MVC with a MS Sql backend. I am super familiar with C# and even MVC to some extent but when it comes to hosts and cloud stuff I am lost. Anyway the idea was brought to my attention by another programmer who is starting soon and he suggested Azure. I am wondering what services of Azure would I need?

    Cheers

    EDIT:

    Also I am about to do a free trial on azure and it asks for my credit card details? will it take anything out?

    You can use Azure Websites for achieving this.

    Go through the following link for using Azure Websites

    http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/web-sites-dotnet-get-started/

    You can Run up to 10 Web Sites per region for free in a multi-tenant environment. 

    Go through the following links for pricing details,

    http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/calculator/

    Also I am about to do a free trial on azure and it asks for my credit card details? will it take anything out?

    Yes you need Credit card details to use the free trial on Azure.After free trail you can able to stop or continue using Azure Services.

    See the following link for purchase options based on your need.

    Use Azure Websites. Yo ucan get 5 free. It's awesome that they are free, but if you then want to use your own domain, SSL or auto-scaling you will need to have a paid for account.

    Still, use the free ones to start developing and when you're ready to launch the site then migrate to a paid for package with a custom URL.

    Yes, they ask for a credit card for the trial but nothing will be charged if you keep inside the limits of the free acounts. Limits apply on features and usage so bear that in mind.
