hello everyone
i have an app deployed on the app service, the subscription plan is Azure Plan and it is working fine
no payments were required so far
i deployed it two weeks ago but i am worried that it might stop when the month end
my question is, will it stop working? and how can i make sure it keeps running while minimizing the costs?

    Hi @Merheb Bek ,

    Thanks for the question. The pricing tier of an App Service plan determines what App Service features you get and how much you pay for the plan. The pricing tiers available to your App Service plan depend on the operating system selected at creation time. Currently there are 4 tiers in Azure Web Apps: Free, Shared, Dedicated – These are the plans labeled Basic, Standard, Premium and PremiumV2) and Isolated – This is the App Service Environment (a dedicated deployment in your vNet)

    It sounds like you're using the Free tier. Sometimes new users get $200 Azure credit in your billing currency for the first 30 days and a limited quantity of free services for 12 months with your Azure free account.

    If that's the case your subscription and services are disabled when your credit runs out or expires at the end of 30 days. To continue using Azure services, you must upgrade your account. For more information, see Upgrade your Azure free account. After you upgrade, you'll have continued access to free services for 12 months and you get charged only for usage beyond the free services and quantities.

    You get a limited quantity of free services each month with your Azure free account. The free quantity expires at the end of the month and doesn't roll over to the next month. For example, you get 5 GB of File storage each month. If in a month, you only use 2 GB, the remaining 3 GB doesn't roll over to the next month. To avoid getting charged, keep your usage within the limits. To learn about limits of free services, see the Azure free account FAQ. To check your free service usage, see Check usage of free services included with Azure free Account. If your usage exceeds the specified quantity of free services, you'll need to pay for the exceeding amount at pay-as-you-go rates. Microsoft will you send you an email notifying you when your credits are exhausted.

    Hope that helps. Please let us know if you have further questions
