Since the beginning the Azure CDN has allowed for custom domains to be mapped so you can use your own domain name instead of the Azure CDN default domain name endpoint; such as that at “*.azureedge.net”.

The Microsoft Azure CDN (Content Delivery Network) provides secure, reliable content delivery with a broad global reach along with rich features.

The Microsoft Azure CDN Interactive Map is Open Source and hosted on Github if you’re curious to see the source code behind it too!
