how to specify another domain? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have own url. For example, http://trinky.com. However, I cannot state this url, when I deploy my web site on Windows Azure. WindowsAzure gives me such address: " http://trinky.windowsazure ".

    How to state my own address? Is it possible?

  • If you are using Azure web sites...then select a web site and you will get option to configure...from configure...you have an option to switch modes...ones you switch the mode to Shared and Reserved then you can configure custom domain names for your site.

    As for the second question...if you are using Cloud services...which always gives you <>.cloudapp.net...you don't have any option in Management portal...but you can still do it...read more here...http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/develop/net/common-tasks/custom-dns/

    Yes..it is not available for every service available in Management portal...but is available for sure...in Azure web sites, Cloud Services, Storage Accounts, and a few more.

  • Where do you get address like http://trinky.windowsazure...i mean i only know of http://<>.azurewebsites.net (in Azure web sites) and http://<>.cloudapp.net (in Cloud Servcies).

    If you are using Azure web sites...you can define custom domain names with it from configure tab...but only in Shared and Reserved mode.

  • Windows Azure uses its own DNS root to help it resolve where your services are hosted. So when you create the service, it must use a globally unique sub-domain of the service's root. If you have your own domain, you can (in some cases), alias that to the reserved named used by Windows Azure. But as Saransh77 points out, this isn't available for all services.

    Do I understand correctly that it is not possible to use my own url?
