Hi Team,

We thought of using Azure Traffic Manager as single end point for my PROD and DR environment. Is there any possibility to configure custom URL and Domain name (instead of xxx.trafficmanager.net) while configuring traffic manger portal itself. ex:- example.org.com

If not, is Azure Front Door can be used for this scenario please suggest.

    You could register your own domain and configure CNAME record pointing to the *.trafficmanager.net domain on your DNS server.

    Hello @Venkata Sai Kalyan ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Platform. Thank you for reaching out & hope you are doing well.

    I understand that you would like to know if it is possible to configure custom URL and Domain name (instead of xxx.trafficmanager.net) while configuring traffic manager in the portal itself. ex: - example.org.com.

    When you create a Traffic Manager profile, Azure automatically assigns a DNS name for that profile. So, you cannot configure a custom domain name when creating the Traffic manager profile, but you can point a custom domain to your Azure traffic manager DNS name.

    For example, if you own a custom domain named "example.com", then to point DNS name www.example.com to the Traffic Manager DNS name xxx.trafficmanager.net, you can create the following DNS resource record in your DNS registrar:

    www.example.com IN CNAME xxx.trafficmanager.net.
    
    

    NOTE: You cannot point a second-level domain, such as contoso.com, to the Traffic Manager domain. DNS protocol standards do not allow CNAME records for second-level domain names.

    Refer: [https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/traffic-manager/traffic-manager-point-internet-domain

    If you want to use Azure Front Door, then you can add a custom domain to your Front Door in Azure portal after creating the CNAME record.

    After you create an Azure Front Door Standard/Premium profile, the default frontend host will have a subdomain of azurefd.net. Azure Front Door provides the option of associating a custom domain with the default host.

    Refer: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/frontdoor/standard-premium/how-to-add-custom-domain

    NOTE: In case of Azure Front Door Standard/Premium, you would need to validate the domain by using DNS TXT records.

    Refer: https://learn.microsoft.com/enhttps://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/frontdoor/standard-premium/how-to-add-custom-domain

    Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.
