How to map a sub-domain to an Azure website

How to map a sub-domain to an Azure website
5 (100%) 1 vote

I have recently created a personal technical forum website in Microsoft Azure.  By default, Azure assigns a URL like this to the website: http://ask-scott.azurewebsites.net

I own the domain http://scottge.net.   I want to use this lovely sub-domain: http://ask.scottge.net for my new forum website.   Here is how I mapped the sub-domain.

 

1. Add a CNAME entry for the sub-domain in the DNS hosting provider

I purchased the domain http://scottge.net from http://godaddy.com, so I went to the godaddy management console.

I clicked the ‘Add Record’ link below, and points the sub-domain ‘ask’ to the Azure website ‘ask-scott.azurewebsites.net’, and ‘awverify.ask’ to ‘awverify.ask-scott.azurewebsites.net’

 

2. Configure the Azure Website

Next, I went to the Azure portal to configure my Azure website.  I switched to the CONFIGURE panel of the ask-scott forum, and scroll down to the ‘domain names’ section.

Click ‘Manage domains’ and add ‘ask.scottge.net’ to the list.

After the changes are saved, the new sub-domain became live!  http://ask.scottge.net.
