Pricing impacts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am currently under free trial but want to understand pricing better.

    What are the elements that impact my monthly billing? 

    I want to use azure for few wordpress multisite installs and some node.js blogs and applications. 

    If I use the Azure SDK for these would that cost me?

    If I link these websites to Webmatrix for local development is that going to cost me extra. 

    Kindly clarify?

  • Hi,

    If you want to understand your pricing better, I would suggest you have a look at this article: http://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/support/understand-your-bill/, you could see the detailed billing information from Azure Billing portal.

    >>If I use the Azure SDK for these would that cost me?

    We could use Azure SDK to develop our application, the Azure SDK is a tool and will not cost you, you could download Azure SDK at: http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/downloads/, however, when you use SDK to do some operations, such as upload file to azure storage, save data to azure storage, etc... you will be charged by the corresponding services, of course, you could see these information from azure billing portal.

    >>If I link these websites to Webmatrix for local development is that going to cost me extra. 

    As far as I know, Webmatrix is a free tool, if we link these websites to local via Webmatrix, it involves only the transfer of data, refer to http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/data-transfers/ for more information about the Data Transfers pricing details.

    Any way, the Billing portal show us the detailed billing information, if you have any confuse about azure billing, you could also contact with azure billing support, here is the support channel: http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/support/contact/
