I'm pretty new to Windows Azure but I'm trying to figure out how it's different from other web hosts. Besides the billing / costs, what differences are there between Azure and traditional Windows web hosting? Is load balancing the biggest difference?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The biggest difference between Windows Azure and other Windows web hosts is that with Windows Azure, you don’t get your own host name. Instead, your website address has to include .azurewebsites.net after after whatever name you pick.
