Do you always rename staging Url on Azure?
  v1.0 Posted at 21/07/2015 11:45 AM by Shigemi Matsumoto

​If you use the default Azure staging web site Url, it can be difficult to remember and a waste of time trying to lookup the name every time you access it. Follow this rule to increase your productivity and make it easier for everyone to access your staging site.

Default Azure Url:

  • sugarlearning-staging.azurewebsites.net
Figure: Bad e​​​​xample - Site using the default Url (hard to remember!!)

Customized Url:

  • staging.sugarlearning.com
Figure: ​Good ​example - Staging Url having production Url with "staging." prefix

​​How to setup a custom Url

1. Add a CName to the default Url to your DNS server
