Static website hosting in Azure blob storage
This would require supporting default file to render and somekind of redirect from root to a particular container.
Our apologies for not updating this ask earlier. Static websites is on our backlog. This feature will include more detailed error messages as well as support for a default Storage Blob. As soon as we have updates to share on Static Websites we will do so. For any further questions, or to discuss your specific scenario, send us an email at email@example.com.
"Static websites is on our backlog" up to now I am waiting 7 years for default object and 404Error return custom object when not exists!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
I have 14 years until I got my pension.
Hope I do one project with Azure, I have already with Rackspace and Amazon

Why does this need to depend on custom SSL domain support? Even without SSL, it would still allow serving unencrypted content, serving https using the azure domain name, or serving HTTPS with custom domain names by chaining it through CDN.
I was happy to see that https is supported by default (unlike AWS), but less happy to see that I cannot even set a default page (well... also unlike AWS).
If you're not planning to implement this in the next few months, please do provide at least an explanation or a workaround to all the frustrated people here.
This feature is just 7 years late

This is simply a necessary feature for costeffective hosting of singlepage applications. unless ofcourse we like **** routes like [blobaddress]/index.html/#/[Something]/[SomethingElse]
Considering it's there in Google Cloud Storage AND Amazon AWS S3 it should make sense to make it here too.
I did in fact look into altertative ways to get the functionality (through a CDN) but no luck.
I guess there is no problem in hosting the singlepage application from Amazon or Google with a backend somewhere in Azure, but it just shouldn't be necessary
Can't believe this is still under review
Seriously, nothing yet? I don't believe, I'm going to move my blobs to Google Cloud.
This must be the new king of vapoware ...

Just asking again - when is this going to be added? Becoming unacceptable now. It is standard functionality of basically any HTTP document server since what 1994? Shall I open a priority support case since this is arguably a bug in Azure really?

What Bob said.
Seriously, it's ridiculous.
Dear mother of god. Welcome to people begging for something obvious, simple, should-have-been-there-from-the-beginning, now for S I X Y E A R S.

This is mid of 2016, any update on this?
As I remember this was delay for June-2016? something to add?
Nathan Evans commented
When will this be added? It is massively overdue.

C'mon Microsoft. I'm going to have to move to S3 and I really don't want to...
Expert Azure Architect commented
I'm going to go with Amazon since you guys don't support this. Just need a simple index.html to be supported as the default.
Any comment from Microsoft personnel?
This is an important requirement for hosting for example single page applications using blob storage.
Michael Sync commented
5 years... still under review? I need this feature as well. S3 has it. Thanks!
It's unfortunate that this feature does not exist. I'm now going to need to use AWS for all of my hosting needs due to this missing feature which is central to my business plans.

https://<account-name>.blob.core.windows.net/<container-name>/<blob-name> と指定するところを、https://<account-name>.blob.core.windows.net/ と指定するだけで、
特定の blob を参照できるようにしていただきたいです。
IIS の [既定のドキュメント] のような機能です。
ストレージアカウントに動画などを置いており、アプリケーションや ホームページ から、
「Amazon S3 での静的ウェブサイトのホスティング」
Azure Storage needs hosting a Static Website like Amazon S3.
Azure Storage Accounts require to link the full URL <https://<account-name>.blob.core.windows.net/<container-name>/<blob-name>>
in order to refer to a blob, while Amazon S3 only needs https://<account-name>.blob.core.windows.net/.
It's like a [default document] in IIS.
Our customer company stores movies on the Azure Storage accounts, and link to applications and homepage, and the shorter URL is much easier to manage it.
「Hosting a Static Website on Amazon S3」
•This URL returns a default index document that you configured for the website.
