Hi Naveen,

If you are using Cloud Services (web role), you can read Microsoft Documentation to create and configure server certificate...http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windowsazure/gg432987.aspx

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.

Hi,

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)

available

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

Regards.

Naveen, can you update your link to https://azure.microsoft.com/documentation/articles/cloud-services-certs-create/ this is where that content has moved to. gg432987.aspx has been deleted.
