I am hosting my domain at 1&1 and have a VM and a mobile service in Azure. Currently I have set a cname to xxx.cloudapp.net. Now I want to create a subdomain for my Azure mobile service (something like mobile.mydomain.net instead of xxx.mobile-azure.net).

I would also need the ability to set MX records.

Hopefully someone of you can help me solving this problem :)

Just create cname which will point to your cloudapp:

mobile.mydomain.net -> xxx.cloudapp.net

Your application will be able to distinguish between mydomain.net and mobile.mydomain.net.

Where can I create my subdomain? the 1&1 control panael has no options for that and where can I enter my MX records? Needed for outlook.com with own domain :) –  Michael Apr 29 '13 at 13:53
    
Strange.. I found one support ticket in Google: support.google.com/blogger/bin/… . It describes how to create a subdomain. Maybe it will help. –  punXter Apr 29 '13 at 14:05
    
MX records should be added there too: faq.1and1.co.uk/domains/domain_admin/dns_settings/9.html –  punXter Apr 29 '13 at 14:06
    
Subdomain: I have a only domain package and I can't access this feature! –  Michael Apr 29 '13 at 16:10
    
MX records: but then I have to use A-record and not cname –  Michael Apr 29 '13 at 16:10

Create an A record for your subdomain and then create a cname from subdomain.mydomain.net to xxx.mobile-azure.net

where did you setup your first cname for xxx.cloudapp.net? It's in the same nameserver registry. You should be able to add an mx record that point to your mail host in there too, but I know 1&1 give you an option to enter your mx record in the setup when you configure it and probably don't need to enter it in the nameserver records. –  Azshlanar Apr 29 '13 at 14:50
    
When configuring your outlook you don't need the mx record you need the mailhost name with your account name on their service to connect to it. The mx record on your nameserver will redirect mail that target your domain name to your mailhost which will make you receive email in your outlook mail box. –  Azshlanar Apr 29 '13 at 14:54
    
The first cname I entered at the 1&1 control panel. The MX record is just available if I choose A-record. –  Michael Apr 29 '13 at 16:12
