    You may easily deploy your apps to Azure App Service if they were written in Visual Studio IDE (typically.NET applications). With a few clicks of the mouse, you may already deploy your application to a remote server using the Visual Studio IDE. As a result of the portal's bulk and complexity, I propose Heroku for less-experienced developers.

    WebWave

    My opinion is that Webwave is an excellent choice for the presentation of portfolios for photographers, videographers, and designers, as well as for the selling of digital products, eCommerce websites, blog content, and premium features that are protected behind a membership system, and educational websites. Although Webwave does not yet have the same compatibility with a wide variety of plugins or the same blog-friendly structure as WordPress, I am confident that it will ultimately reach that point given the current speed of development. Additionally, a larger user base will increase the community base and popularity of the product.

    Pros

    Microsoft

    • It has options to deploy using CI/CD.
    • It has great integration with Azure Devops
    • It has all the common runtimes, so we don't need to install softwares.

    • Web designing--super customizable. It's really like a graphic design tool. Anything on the website can be changed the way you want. WordPress doesn't usually allow it, with its fixed rows and columns set up. But here I found out i could do anything.
    • Simple UX--Part of the reason why the builder works so well is the UX. It's simple but does the job, and you don't have to think too hard to find the buttons.
    • Has all features one would need, including ecommerce. I don't plan on using it yet though (my business doesn't require it) but it's nice to have in case the business grows.

    Cons

    Microsoft

    • the learning curve can be tough (just like other azure services)
    • the UX/UI could be more intuitive (just like other azure services as well)
    • monitoring can be hard to understand
    • Microsoft's learning resources are hard to understand

    WebWave

    • Even if the page is modified and saved, the published site does not see the changes. It took up to an hour for the changes to take effect.
    • There is no integration of the Google rich schema settings.
    • Loading time is not as fast as many competitors—Gtmetrix performance rating is a maximum of 81 percent, although Google PageSpeed mobile (56 percent) and desktop (56 percent) are faster (91 percent ). Checked with a ready-made theme.
    • The WebWave website IP addresses have been blacklisted for malware. Malwarebytes frequently prevents the loading editor or live test pages. This could be because the backend framework IPs were previously utilized someplace, affecting WebWave in general.
    • Only payment gateway for the store settings is Stripe, which is not available in many countries.
    • Manual VAT/Tax options in the shipping/store page-single/fixed one tax type only.

      We had an issue where we deployed too large of a resource and didn't notice until the bill came through. They were very understanding and saw we weren't utilizing the resources so they issued a generous refund in about 4 hours. Very fast, friendly, and understanding support reps from my experience.

      1. The support person does not seem to understand the issues, and seems like they go off to talk to somebody and revert back every 5 to 10 minutes. It takes up a lot of time. 2. There is a lack of reading material to address simple issues like changing the website name in the dashboard, pasting a code, etc.

      Alternatives Considered

      Microsoft

      Azure has many data center, their services are more reliable. Azure has way more features than both Linode and DigitalOcean. If someone wants a complete reliable service, he/she must go to Azure instead of Linode and DigitalOcean because even though azure charges more, it is worth the money you pay there.

      It's an easier, super complete option and cheaper Instead of paying everything separately like Wix, this option gives you all for a good price. And is the same with Elementor, you need to pay their license, the hosting, the domain, and connect everything manually, but this option is more affordable with high quality. They have time in the market and they reinvented their branding with a fresh and cool look.

      • Gave us an alternative to quickly deploy our applications without granting access to the version control system to a third platform.
