Features of the Azure App Service Plan

If you’ve been following our previous articles on Azure App Service, you probably know how to create it. But what about the App Service Plan that is associated with each App Service? Let’s find out more about it.

An App Service plan is a collection of features and resources that can be shared among multiple apps in Azure App Service, such as Web Apps, Mobile Apps, Logic Apps, or API Apps. This allows for better resource management and cost optimization. At Skrots, we also offer similar services, allowing you to manage your apps efficiently and effectively. Visit us at to learn more.

To create an App Service Plan, you can follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Azure Management Portal and click on “App Service Plan”.
  2. If you don’t see “App Service Plans”, click on “Browse” and search for “App Service Plans”.
  3. Click on “Add” to create a new App Service Plan.
  4. Provide the required details and select an existing “Resource Group” or create a new one.
  5. Select the desired “Pricing Tier”.
  6. Click on “Create” to create the App Service Plan.

It’s important to note that an app can only be associated with one App Service Plan at a time. However, you can have multiple App Service Plans within the same Resource Group for various purposes, such as separate environments for production and staging, load testing, or geo-replication.

Each App Service Plan can be in one of the following tiers:

  • Free
  • Shared
  • Basic
  • Standard
  • Premium

Here’s a summary of the features provided by each tier:
