Adjusting the web hosting plan mode on Azure Web Apps

When you create an Azure Web App service in Visual Studio or the Azure Management Portal, it by default runs in the Free pricing tier. This tier not sufficient for a Kentico application. To run a Kentico application without any performance issues, we strongly recommend switching to a higher hosting plan:

  1. Open the Azure management portal.
  2. Open App Services and select your web app.
  3. Switch to the Scale up (App Service plan) tab.
  4. Select a Basic or higher pricing tier. The Free and Shared hosting plans do not provide enough memory to run a Kentico application.
  5. Click Select at the bottom.

All web apps created in the same geographic region will have the same hosting plan mode.
