Currently you can only have one reserved (static) public IP for a given Azure VM. This limits any case where you would want to run multiple SSL enabled sites/applications on the standard 443 port.
I understand there is support for SNI SSL with host headers but not all applications and devices support this feature. Current competition in you market allow up to 5 IPs. A limit I believe is still arbitrarily low given the power of your larger VM instances available.122 votesplanned · AdminAzure IaaS Engineering Team (Azure IaaS Engineering Team, Microsoft, Microsoft Azure) responded
This is an area with active investment.
Please provide an api that will us to gather the full list of azure ip addresses, the ones added in the last week, and the ones deleted in the last week. This would be used to automate the weekly changes we need to make to accommodate these changes.38 votes
Thank you for your suggestion. We agree this is an urgent need and have a project underway to address it. Stay tuned.
Add a feature that gives you an static IP regardless of what server you attach to it. That wat, if you have to migrate your server you keep your IP Address.3 votes
Hi there, this is good feedback and we already have this on our list for long term roadmap.
However, we have to make some non-trivial changes to make this happen.
