Setup a Subdomain with a Cert to Azure App

Hello -

I have never done this before so need some guidance. We have a server for a custom built application that we need to have publicly facing. We want to add a subdomain to our public website that links to our app... so

Our domain is hosted by a third party who does not allow us to access the hosting settings. My app team sent me a certificate signing request file to set this up. Is this something that requires our hosting vendor to setup or can I do this on my own and just give them DNS info?

    Hi @BmoreOs , thanks for the question. You mentioned your domain is hosted by a third party that does not allow you to access the hosting settings which means they will have to setup the subdomain for you.

    To add a subdomain to your public website, you need to do two things: create the subdomain content at your host and create a DNS record for the subdomain. To create a DNS record for your subdomain, you need to access your domain’s DNS settings, which are usually managed by your domain registrar. To learn more please read this tutorial:

    is there a way for you to get access to the hosting settings?
