Using CNAME With Azure

It was really hard to find and asking Google for the answer was tricky so I’m going to let you know: If you’re wanting to use a CNAME with a site that’s hosted on Microsoft Azure, you must be in Reserved Mode.

About Chris Missal

Oh hey, I'm a Senior Consultant for Headspring in Austin, TX. I've been working in software professionally since 2006 and I really, really love it. I'm mostly in the Microsoft world, but enjoy building computer things of all sorts (to be vague). When I'm not slinging code, I'm probably out and about slinging discs, bowling balls, or good beer with great friends.

    Yup, and CNAME will be allowed for Shared instances come General Availability, it just is only for Reserved right now.
