Thank you for your feedback. We are currently in public preview of static website hosting for Azure Storage to enable this scenario. Check out the blog post here for more details: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/azure-storage-static-web-hosting-public-preview. The feature set includes support for default documents and custom error documents for HTTP status code 404.
For any further questions, or to discuss your specific scenario, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org commented
I agree. S3 just added support for root documents. We need it too! I need to be able to put index.html (or index.htm) on my site and avoid having to type it into the URL.
Thanks for the feedback! We are interested in collecting feedback on this request – please vote for it if this is something you like to see.
We’re also interested in learning more what people want to use the SFTP/FTPS for and which protocol they prefer. Please feel free to leave us a comment letting us know more detail!

I'm new to the cloud, but I can't seem to find a Microsoft-blessed tool for uploading into Azure storage? The Silverlight management app doesn't seem to support it. I'll have to download a third-party app that I don't trust and give that app all my credentials just to get anything up into my storage. Is there some other way that I'm not aware of?
This is a very interesting idea and one I like a lot! Let me dig into whether this is something we could consider in the future. Thanks for the idea! :)moorster shared this idea ·
