Hi Naveen,

If you are using Cloud Services (web role), you can read Microsoft Documentation to create and configure server certificate...

If you are using Azure Web sites, currently I far as know the provision in not available. You can still have your site run on HTTPS though as Microsoft itself has a server certificate on IIS.

An SSL certificate can be created as self-signed if one is using the IIS to create it

for Windows Azure

and there are also othe

Certification Authorities (CA)


PS: There may be other sources also for more accurate accounts of this
