I'm considering using a DNS solution to solve the issue with elastic IPs for Windows Azure roles. This blog post describes how to have both example.com and www.example.com point to an azure role such as example.cloudapp.net. However, I would like to streamline the process so that there is no forwarding.
One solution I've found is DNS Azure and another that seems to fulfill the requirements is Amazon Route 53. I was wondering whether anyone has had experience with either one of those for this particular task.
