How To Create An Azure Web App Service In The Azure Portal

The Azure Web App Service is one of the key ways that Azure provides for hosting websites and apps. There are a number of different features and options in the Web App Service that make it a very full feature offering, and in this topic, we look at the basics of creating a Web App from the Azure portal. We look at setting up the App Service plan first to define the resources and scale that we need the hosting to provide and then move onto the simple steps of creating the app itself. By the end, we have a default running website and show how to access the files in order to customise it.
