Create an App Service Plan

An App Service Plan defines the compute resources used to run Web Apps (similar to a server farm). You can choose Windows or Linux operating systems, the number of Virtual Machine instances (workers) and the size of VMs.

  • Workers are the virtual machines that run your apps. 
  • Each worker unit is a VM instance or node in the server farm, and each one has a cost.
  • You'll need to create an App Service plan before you can create a Web App

The options used in this guide are examples for testing only. For production websites, you might want to add these options: --sku --number-of-workers

# Create an App service plan
az appservice plan create -g www-planetexpress-rg -n www-planetexpress-plan  

This command will create a default Windows App service plan, B1:1 with 1 worker if other options are not specified.

Create a Web App

Create a Web App that uses the App Service Plan we created in the previous step -p www-planetexpress-plan

# Create a web app 
az webapp create -g www-planetexpress-rg -p www-planetexpress-plan -n www-planetexpress-app 

You can stop / restart your web app from the Overview tab
