Good feedback. Let us take a look. Please vote this up if others would like this support.
I've come to the conclusion it's time to move to AWS, cearly MS can't be bothered here.
Yes please provide an update. ANY self respecting web app/site will not want its users wating several seconds while views are compiled.
Same pre-compile solution can be used for this (170 votes at the moment) http://feedback.azure.com/forums/169386-cloud-services-web-and-worker-role/suggestions/3769859-warm-up-iis-applications-in-webrole

So what's the latest?
Pre-compile views will do it, it's unacceptable that users need to stare at a white screen for 1-5 seconds before anything loads: http://feedback.azure.com/forums/169386-cloud-services-web-and-worker-role/suggestions/5863196-allow-easy-asp-net-precompilation-in-cloud-project
RAM on all the general purpose instance sizes is far too low. If you consider A0 which has 0.75GB RAM, After the OS, there is practically nothing left for application use. It's a similar story for A1.
Even Microsoft's own minimum RAM specification for Windows Server 2012 is at least 2 GB with a recommendation of 8 GB. RAM on A0-A3 needs to be seriously increased.
Ideally we should be able to specify our own RAM requirements when creating a VM/Cloud Service.
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.

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.
Under review 8 months ago, can we have an update? SSL is becoming increasingly important especially for business services in the cloud.
