How can I configure a sub domain for a site hosted on azure?

I already have configured subdomains which are resolved by my droplet and the are working excellent.

But now what i’m willing to do, is to point a subdomain to an Azure Web Application but i don’t understand quite much about how to achieve this.

What I did (with no results) is to create a CNAME register with my sub domain name to my azure web app domain. For example: 1800 IN CNAME

How should I work this out?

@asb @ryanpq Thanks for the answer guys! Finally the CNAME settings where fine. I made some more research and then I figured out I just had to activate the “custom domain” feature on the corresponding azure Web App Service. And that, with the cname, did the trick!

Thank you both again!

You can find more information on setting up DNS records via the DigitalOcean control panel here. It does sound like you have set up the correct records, is your subdomain resolving now?

Create a zone for your subdomain From the Azure portal, select Create a resource. In the search box, type DNS, and select DNS zone. Select Create. In the Create DNS zone pane, type in the Name text box. Select the resource group for your zone. Click Create. I hope this helps.
