    I completely agree with Carl. While this idea sounds good on the surface, it would really end up increasing Microsoft costs of running the service resulting in higher prices. People are already complaining about Azure prices being too high. If you want to donate "unused CPU cycles", then install that stuff on your own computers and leave them running 24 hours a day.

    This would provide for a security hole in the system. You can't trust any other subdomain at cloudapp.net any more than you trust any other random website. It's most secure for you to map your own custom domain or subdomain to your *.cloudapp.net url and then install your own SSL certificate for your site to use.
