Microsoft Azure Websites: Full Support for Wildcard DNS and SSL

Microsoft Azure Websites is Pure Awesome. The speed and amount of work that can be done in a very short period of time is just amazing.

Today, I’m sharing a feature that I’ve been waiting for, for a long time. Wildcard support for DNS and SSL Certificates. In the past, you could use a wildcard certificate, but because Wildcard DNS wasn’t supported, you had to manually enter your sub domains one-by-one. This doesn’t scale very well.

In this screen cast I show you how to setup a *.Wildcard DNS and SSL under an Azure Website. It’s just shy of 5 minutes.

Enjoy. (It’s a good idea to watch this full screen, to see the small typing)
