Yes, you read that right. If all you need is a way to show a couple of static web pages you could run a static website for less than the cost of a coffee for the entire year. Although the focus here is a small, simple, and static website, you can apply the same logic to larger sites or even if you need a way to serve up static content over HTTP, not just a website.
What do we mean by a static website?
In web terms, there are primarily two types of website: those which are static based on traditional Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) files and those which are dynamic, calculating different content server-side or retrieving information from a database.
Here, we’re talking about the former. Using the Static Website feature in Azure Storage, we can serve up HTML, JavsScript, and Cascading Stylesheets (CSS).
