  • Question

  • I need a simple hosting. So I decided to try Azure.

    Am I making a mistake, or after the Trial if I want to keep:

    - Shared host (for custom domain names)
    - SQL Server 100MB only
    - 5GB bandwidth

    I will have to spend 

    $14.67/mo

    ???

    Godaddy is offering

    Unlimited Websites

    Unlimited Bandwidth

    Unlimited Disk Space

    SQL Server database (200mb)

    for

    $4.49/month

    Who is the target of Azure? I highly doubt I am in the right place, Azure seems so expensive. Or am I making a mistake?
