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.Christopher commented
This feature is just 7 years late
This is something we’re still actively working on. It has a been a big area of investment and it still is moving forward. We keep investing in performance, both from a client and server side perspective.
We have a few things coming in the near future which should help address some of the initial UI performance issues. We’re also heavily engaged with all of our partners driving a broad effort to improve performance across the portal for all experiences.
If you have any specific areas which are causing pain please feel free to reach out to me or comment and state if we can contact you, it would be great to understand the common pain points.
We are likely to support this in phases. Stay tuned for more details.Christopher commented
Fall 2012... Sometimes I wonder if they even give a fuck about what we write here
Good feedback. No plans in this area, yet.
SSL only requires multiple IPs when the client is on Windows XP, using an older version of Internet Explorer. Most modern browsers support SNI (Server Name Indication) and thus don’t require multiple IPs.
Support for multiple IPs is under review in the team.
