Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've seen questions similar to this but haven't been able to come up with a solution to my problem yet.

I've been trying to get a site setup with GoDaddy for DNS and windows azure for hosting.

I can't get browsers to pull up midwestcointrader.com

They will work fine with both midwestcointrader.azurewebsites.net and www.midwestcointrader.com

Here's what I have configured now.

midwestcointrader.com redirects to www.midwestcointrader.com
www.midwestcointrader.com is a CNAME for midwestcointrader.azurewebsites.net
A record for midwestcointrader.com points to

Any ideas what I'm missing in the setup process, or information I can include that would be helpful?

A quick look at dig for your zones doesn't show anything glaringly wrong with your DNS configuration, which leads me to believe that this is a web server configuration issue.

If I had to guess, I'd say that you have a binding in IIS for the site in question that will only serve pages if the request comes to www.midwestcointrader.com. You should add midwestcointrader.com to the site binding as well. I'm not sure how to do this in Azure, but I'm sure it's covered in their documentation.

Thank you for your suggestion! I'll look into the binding issues. –  Andrew Walters Oct 19 '12 at 13:34
Did you have any success with this? I am having a similar issue with a Fasthosts domain. –  Richard May 28 '13 at 12:16
