    Hi @Vishvanathan K

    Azure app service
    We guarantee that Apps running in a customer subscription will be available 99.95% of the time. No SLA is provided for Apps under either the Free or Shared tiers.

    Bot channels registration
    There are 2 ways to register a bot with Azure:

    Following the steps in the article Create a bot with Azure Bot Service, the bot is created on and registered with Azure and a Web application is created to host the bot. You use this approach if you develop and host a bot in Azure.
    To create and develop your bot locally, follow the steps in this article. When you register your bot, you supply the web address where your bot is hosted. You can still host it in Azure.

    Hello @Vishvanathan K
    An Azure subscription is an agreement with Microsoft to use one or more Microsoft cloud platforms or services, for which charges accrue based on either a per-user license fee or on cloud-based resource consumption.

    So to start using Azure AppService you have to sign an agreement or other words: register Azure Subscription.
    Registration of Azure Subscription is free of charge
