Hello,

 

I'm looking to try the 12 months offer and want to host my domain (currently hosted with a registrar) on Azure.

 

It seems that I can't just do a nameserver change and point the domain to Azure (host what seems to be called a custom domain). 

 

Can someone explain in simple plain English to a non-techie, if I can host my domain (www.mydomain.com) using the 12 months free offer? I have read about combining static website + CDN - is that my only option?

 

Thanks!

Very best,

Tim
