You should take a look at Windows Azure Web Sites. Web Sites offers a very straightforward way to deploy your apps to Azure without worrying about any virtual machine setup. It also has a free tier, which you can then upgrade when you feel you need more capacity, want to add SSL, or add a custom domain name. Web Sites offers ftp access, but also has full ...

The customer requires proof of ownership of the dedicated IP address. Unless this customer is willing to pay an massive premium for you to really own an IP address block (more info...is this a multimillion dollar enterprise contract?) and pay for the talent and hardware to manage just that part of the job, what they are really asking for is a way to ...

Does Google even treat different ports as different sites? Yes. Google can and does index URLs with non-standard ports, as relayed here by Google's Matt Cutts, and also confirmed in a comment to this answer here on our site by Google's John Mueller: Yep, we can index sites on IP addresses and/or on non-standard ports. I'm a bit nervous of duplicated ...

I found the solution by going to the old portal. The correct CNAME is awverify.beta.myapp.com => awverify.myapp-beta.azurewebsites.net.

For an Azure website not running in a VPS, you just need to supply a .pfx file (this step of the tutorial). You can use the Utility running on any Windows machine (including your local workstation) to create the .pfx file as described in the tutorial.

IIS supports header expires, simply add them to your web.config file. Examples: SOURCE <configuration> <system.webServer> <staticContent> <clientCache cacheControlMode="UseExpires" httpExpires="Tue, 19 Jan 2038 03:14:07 GMT" /> </staticContent> </system.webServer> </...

The DNS standard does not support using CNAME records for the zone apex (root domain), some DNS providers get around this by creating a virtual CNAME record where you add where it should reference and the DNS server checks the IP address of the CNAME resolution and sends that back at the time of the query. As for your email question you can use any provider ...

I use SendGrid.com with Azure. There is an API, but the easiest way is to just use their SMTP server. Pricing is very reasonable, a couple of dollars for thousands of emails per month. I previously used Google Apps but there are limitations, like 1000 emails per days, which could be a problem if you have to send in bulk. Regarding receiving emails, I use ...

You need to create a CNAME record for both the base domain and www.domain.com within GoDaddy. TYPE: CNAME NAME: awverify VALUE: awverify.hotelmontecristobg.azurewebsites.net TYPE: CNAME NAME: awverify.www VALUE: awverify.hotelmontecristobg.azurewebsites.net Once the record is created in GoDaddy, you can then bring the external domain into Azure.

Based on Joses Answer this does what i need: - I can access the azurewebsites domain while still on the deployment slot - the production domain will always be redirected to subdomain with https <rule name="HTTPS and Subdomain in Production" stopProcessing="true"> <match url="(.*)" /> <conditions> <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^.*...

You need to get a Reserved IP address and assign it to your virtual machine. As far as I can tell, at the moment, setting this up requires you to use the Azure PowerShell cmdlets. I have never seen the option for it in the web portal. Microsoft documents this as follows: First, create a Reserved IP for your subscription. You can use the following ...

Theoretically you can but due to long standing abuse seen using these networks many cloud service providers apply restrictions on sending emails from their cloud services unless you can make a specific business case to them in which case they will release the restriction for your account. I tried to do this with Azure and found the process to authorize it ...

I doubt you'll get an answer without running tests on each CDN. If by performance you mean page loading speed, then you can use http://www.webpagetest.org to test the exact same website behind each CDN, one CDN at a time, but make sure your whole server setup remains unchanged in both tests in order to get accurate results. You may need to run the test ...

You should never use a CNAME for your root domain name in my opinion so I would go with your 2nd example. A xx.com > 123.456.789 A www.xx.com > xx.com Although it is debatable I would say to answer your question specifically, whilst on the same domain (i.e. subdomains) it would be perfectly fine to use a CNAME however in ...

I see some problems with your rewrite rules. You don't explicitly turn on mod_rewrite with RewriteEngine On When using rewrite rules in your .htaccess file the slash at the beginning of them is assumed. Having a slash at the beginning of the rule will prevent rewrite from executing the rule. (This is different than if the rule were in httpd.conf where the ...

Problem solved. It appeared the Microsoft mangement had migrated our server, and some how their notification e-mail was lost in the process. Their support told me that you could identify such problems by downloading the publisher profile and see whether there are information there which doesn't match your current login credentials.

In both cases, you're going to present to search engines a new site (a new URL). That's why you have the same chance for SEO with option 1 or option 2. For example, there is no advantage to get a subdomain or a new domain name for SEO; for search engines, a new site is a new site. However, it's always a good idea to buy your own domain name, it's cleaner (...

If you don't want to separate robots.txt or you don't want to add metatags noindex then your options are very limited; one could be to password protect your azure site, but that will lead to restricted visitors access. Some about this here. On the other hand, is your robots.txt too complex? does it have tons of rules? why do you give it too much importance?...

So, are your websites exactly the same? same content, same html? and the only difference is domain and hosting? Spiders will crawl any website as long as it is public, and no rules inside robots.txt or metatags explicitly tell them to keep out of the site. Your problem is due to duplicate content, to Googlebot's eyes, one of your sites is copying content ...

After many hours of research I found nothing wrong with my code and had several guys look at it. I decided to delete the site at the server, recreate it, and re-deploy my files into a fresh site. And it worked! My apologies for the troubles. It seems Azure had some problems to begin with. Looks like I will be leaving them soon. Thanks for your time

Yes, Azure allows three things - virtual machines, website, and a more complicated platform. This describes how to create a site for PHP, but applies to sites generally, then this guide describes how to find out what you need to FTP your files.

If you cannot change your Apache configuration, you can try http://wwwizer.com (top of the page) where you point the NAKED domain to the IP address of WWWizer, and your WWW subdomain to your server. This will redirect all requests to the WWW subdomain.

they would experience a detriment to response time relative to your VM resources. Beyond that its a guess question. "Some detriment, what specifically is unknown without VM environment specifics" Lousy albeit concise answer. If you would like a more concrete answer: avail us to more concrete server resource information :D Good luck sir or madam ! :D

While Microsoft is a registrar i'm not sure they offer domain name registration services to the public. They do list ASP hosting services here http://www.microsoft.com/web/hosting/home it's not MS hosting or registering domain names.

I still haven't figured out an easy way to get the JPEG XR and downloadable F# code files to go into the *.cspkg file, but I did get the files to work on my Web Role. I had to follow Mr. Vipul Patel's instructions in his article Using Windows Azure Storage Service to Upload Files to create a storage service and then put the affected files in the blob. ...

We've addressed this from the other side on Super User as a Community FAQ: How do I diagnose not being able to reach a specific website as an end user? If I can generally reach web pages on the Internet but can't reach a specific one, how do I troubleshoot what the cause is as an end user? You may find some of the tips over there useful for helping ...
