Static websites on Azure Storage reach general availability.
Get started now
Azure Storage makes hosting of websites easy and cost-efficient. When you enable the static website hosting on your Azure Storage account, a container named ‘$web’ is automatically created for you. You can then upload your static content to this container for hosting. Your content will be available through a web endpoint (i.e., myaccount.z20.web.core.windows.net) and will get a default page and a 404 page of your choice.

There are no additional charges for enabling static websites on Azure Storage. The pricing for storing and accessing your data will apply and can be viewed on the pricing page. In addition to the storage costs, data egress charges will apply and are described within the Bandwidth Pricing Details.
