Transfer domain registrar to Azure/GoDaddy

Michael Luo 20 Reputation points

I understand that Azure is not a domain registrar. Azure partners with 3rd-party (GoDaddy) to offer domain registration service. But buying domain names from within Azure gives customers single pane of glass management (such as domain renewal from within Azure, etc.).

Right now, my domain registrar is Cloudflare. I've already set up my Azure App Service (WordPress) to use the custom domain.

I know how to transfer domain from Cloudflare to GoDaddy. But how do I get the "single pane of glass management" as if I had purchased the domain within Azure? Simply transferring the domain to GoDaddy may or may not achieve this goal.

This link tells me how to transfer domain from Microsoft to another registrar. But I'm trying to do the other way around - transfer from another registrar to Microsoft.

Thank you!

    Hi Michael,

    Transferring domain in is currently not supported. See excerpt from Azure App Service team blog article below:

    Transfering of domain into Azure is currently not supported. Any attempts made to transfer the domain into Azure risks getting the domain into a broken state. We will not be providing support to fix domains caught in this broken state due to unsupported transfer in scenario.

    If you want, you could delegate DNS zone to Azure DNS so that you could manage DNS records within Azure portal, but from your description I understand you are wanting more than that. Plus, if you are using Cloudflare services for the domain you likely need to keep DNS with them.
