Azure Websites vs PythonAnywhere: What are the differences?
What is Azure Websites? Deploy and scale modern websites and web apps in seconds. Azure Websites is a fully managed Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) that enables you to build, deploy and scale enterprise-grade web Apps in seconds. Focus on your application code, and let Azure take care of the infrastructure to scale and securely run it for you.
What is PythonAnywhere? Micro PaaS for Python web apps. Develop and host Python from your browser. It's somewhat unique. A small PaaS that supports web apps (Python only) as well as scheduled jobs with shell access. It is an expensive way to tinker and run several small apps.
Azure Websites and PythonAnywhere belong to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack.
"Ease of deployment" is the primary reason why developers consider Azure Websites over the competitors, whereas "Web apps" was stated as the key factor in picking PythonAnywhere.
