Then you need to provide the Instance details were you need to provide a unique instance name. I am using test301 so the complete name becomes test301.azurewebsites.net as you can see below. Then you have the option to publish it as Code or Docker Container. I will choose to publish as Code. Next you need to choose the Runtime Stack. I am using .NET 6(Early Access) as my runtime stack. You can choose as per your requirement.

Then you need to choose the Operating System you want to use. Currently Azure provides two options - Linux or Windows. I am going to choose Windows for my web app. Finally, you need to choose the Region. By default, Central US will be selected. I will use this default option however you can change it to a suitable location as per your need.

c) Monitoring

Next section is about enabling the monitoring for this app service using Application Insights.
