make it possible to use SSL on blob storage using custom domains
Currently you can use SSL but you have to user the standard URL. You can create a CNAME to your storage account but most browsers complain that the traffic was rerouted and is possibly an attack. There should be a way to install a domain certificate to your containers.
You can now use the Azure CDN to access blobs with custom domains over HTTPS. See the following article for instructions on how to do so: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/storage-https-custom-domain-cdn. Having talked to a number of customers, we concluded that this solution addresses many scenarios where the need for HTTPS access to blobs with custom domains exists.
Native Azure Storage support for using SSL to access blobs at custom domains is still on our backlog. We would love to hear about your scenarios where using the Azure CDN is not an acceptable solution, either by posting on this thread or sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're delivering video from our container and the CDN is far too much extra cost for our needs right now. We just need HTTPS, not CDN.
We have a requirement to generate a file during new customer onboarding process, which the customer has to download. This typically happens once for each customer.
We currently put this file in blob storage and send the customer a download link. Ideally we would like this link to have or domain name as our customers know our domain name and this also fits with our branding.
Having to set up a CDN to deliver one file to each customer once seems rather excessive.
Being able to specify a custom domain for the download link is all we require.

Hortonworks, not HortenWorks...
Azure, please implement this BASIC feature already. It's been years!!
Microsoft is still the arrogant Microsoft
Julien Cantinos commented
It's shame after 6years that this feature isn't implemented!
CDN solution is just a profitable workaround...
Once support for SSL and custom domains have been added, we also need automatic redirect from any http requests to https to provide the best possible experience for users that access static web sites hosted in storage (or the option to turn it on)

Static websites need definitely custom domains with SSL. They don't necessarily need CDN. For a small project/website CDN is just overkill
Michael Iantosca commented
We need a solution that supports HTTPS, Custom Domain and SAS tokens for private access to blobs - the CDN does not support the SAS requirement.
Chrome displays (the ever so subtle, and commonly missed by our users) pop-up blocker for cross domain file download requests.
I concur with the others; CDN is often an unnecessary expense, not just the billed cost but all the hidden costs as well (complexity, configuration, maintenance) for simpler setups.
It is very much a business requirement for many of our projects, so this is a priority 1 feature request on our side.
Please add as others had said i need it for my static website and dont have a need for a CDN.

Native Azure Storage support for using SSL to access blobs at custom domains makes even more sense now, in combination with the static websites feature. We could use this as the primary serving point for many of our web sites.
Static websites need custom domains with SSL. They don't necessarily need CDN. My current project is for users in one city. CDN is an unnecessary expense. Please add the ability to use SSL with custom domains and static websites.
The amount of CDN's you can create per subscription is too limited, thus we would rather have custom domains with SSL support. Also, we have customers in mainly one country so a CDN is not useful.

This is a very important business requirement for our organization.
@MS: When will this feature request become available?
Static websites on Azure Storage without a custom domain and SSL is worthless.
Like mentionned by others here, we are in the situation where we don't want any cache on our files, but are constrained to use CDN just to get a freaking custom domain with SSL, so we have to pay twice for each download ... Fix this please !

Definitely much needed now with the static web hosting features coming to storage. CDN isn't a good alternative IMO

With static web hosting in preview, https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/azure-storage-static-web-hosting-public-preview/, this is needed even more.
