We’re tracking this on our long-term backlog. However, it’s unlikely that we’ll support this in the near future.
Thank you for the suggestion and please keep the votes and ideas coming.
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 email@example.com.Anonymous commented
"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
This is an interesting idea. The ask is currently on our backlog and will be prioritized accordingly. It is unlikely to happen in the coming year due to other priorities, however we will update when the status changes.
Thank you for your feedback. Providing this functionality is on our backlog but there is no ETA we can share at this time. We will provide updates when they become available. For any further questions, or to discuss your specific scenario, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
While this feature is under review, Shared Access Signatures (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/windowsazurestorage/archive/2012/06/12/introducing-table-sas-shared-access-signature-queue-sas-and-update-to-blob-sas.aspx) can be used to specify exact permissions for a table, partition, or entity, and distribute those to calling applications. Using this can reduce the risk of accidental deletions.
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 email@example.com.
