Registering CNAME record for custom domain name and Azure DNS name RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    In my scenario I have a DEV site hosted in Azure VM, I require the site to be publicly accessible. As part of reducing the cost since this a DEV environment we are not using public static IPs and hence I made a  cname record against the particular VMs Azure FQDN and our custom domain name. The changes were made in the webserver as well for routing the azure VMs FQDN. 

    But now when I use the custom domain name URL I get 503 error, but using the azure VMs FQDN as URL i can easily access my site, Am i overlooking something or is this the right way to do.

    Any help would be deeply appreciated.

  • I found the answer myself, once I added the my custom domain name to the IIS binding it worked fine for, this was something that i overlooked.
