Point a Company Internet Domain to a Traffic Manager Domain
Updated: March 13, 2014
To point your company domain name to a Traffic Manager domain name, modify the DNS resource record on your Internet DNS server to use the CNAME record type, which maps your company domain name to the domain name of your Traffic Manager profile. You can see the Traffic Manager domain name in the General section on the Configuration page of the Traffic Manager profile.
For example, to point the company domain name www.contoso.com to the Traffic Manager domain name contoso.trafficmanager.net, you would update your DNS resource record to be the following:
www.contoso.com IN CNAME contoso.trafficmanager.net
All traffic requests to www.contoso.com will now be directed to contoso.trafficmanager.net.
|You cannot point a second level domain, such as contoso.com, to the Traffic Manager domain. This is a limitation of the DNS protocol, which does not allow CNAME records for second level domain names.|
