Microsoft has announced a new cloud hosting service that will offer a free 30-day trial for customers to try out the platform.
Eclipse Web host will be available in the U.S. and Europe on August 2 for $7.99 per month.
“Eclipse Web Host is a free cloud hosting platform with a dedicated user base,” Microsoft says on its website.
“With Eclipse Web hosts, you can host your websites and applications on our Azure cloud and take advantage of our enterprise features.
We will be introducing more Eclipse Web hosting services in the coming months.”
The service will offer basic hosting options, but Microsoft says Eclipse WebHost has a more advanced version that offers advanced functionality.
For instance, the service can handle hosting your entire website on your Azure cloud.
Eclipse Host is also free for existing customers of Microsoft’s Azure cloud service, and it also offers a subscription to Azure Premium that will allow you to host up to 10,000 websites on your own cloud.
