Verify Azure Costs
When you create your Azure account, you will be provided a $200 credit with no charge ONLY for 30 days. Please make sure to turn off the resources you’ve created after each exercise and project as you can very easily exceed your $200 limit.
Please use the Standard_B1s size for your VM, and you should be able to keep the AppService at the free tier with no problem.
Once you set up your Azure account, keep tabs on your Azure cost and ensure your costs don’t exceed what’s provided to you in the Azure free tier. To do so,
- Choose a subscription (such as Pay-As-You-Go or Free tier)
- View the Cost Analysis
This shows a cost breakdown of the resources in your subscription. Be sure to check this each day, especially if you are using Terraform to create resources. Also please enable Auto-shutdown for your VM by going to the Azure Portal > your VM > Operations > Auto-shutdown.
