Adding Custom Domain to Azure Front Door Assistance

hampton123 1,115 Reputation points

Hi, currently I've added an Azure Front Door service to my storage account's static website. The static website is an interface for my API's system. I want to add a custom domain to my Azure Front Door system, however I'm a bit confused on the process. I have my own custom certificate to upload, however I thought it would be as simple as adding the certificate and passkey to Azure Front Door, similar to API Management. Do I need to create a key vault to store my certificate? Are there any steps I can follow to ensure I am adding my custom domain correctly? I find tutorials online however they are not for an entirely "custom" domain, as they have "azurefd" attached to the end of their URLs. Thank you in advance!

    @hampton123 ,

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

    Please note that

    1. Adding a custom domain
    2. enabling HTTPS (adding certificate) to the custom domain

    are two different steps.

    First, you have to make sure you add the custom domain.

    Now for BYOC certificates,

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