Azure Subscriptions

When we discuss Azure, I just want to give a note about the Subscription. So when you create your Azure free account, you will have a subscription in place. Here when I created the Azure free account, It’s giving me the name of my subscription as Visual Studio Enterprise Subscription — MPN. Again, you will maybe have a different name for your subscription, but when you create an Azure free account, you will get one subscription in place.

Now, this subscription is used for billing purposes. So for any resource that you create on the Azure platform, if there is a cost that is associated with that resource, it will be billed against that subscription. And if you are using the Azure free account, you do get that two hundred dollars worth of free credit to use for the first 30 days. So if there are any costs against your subscription, it will be taken from the 200 dollars worth of free credit.

I just want to give a quick introduction onto a subscription.
