What Options are Available for Adding an SSL/TSL Certificate in Azure?
You can use a free managed certificate from Azure to secure your custom domain. But keep in mind that this certificate has many limitations, such as it doesn't support wildcards or naked domains. It also doesn't support A records.
You can also buy a managed certificate from Azure. They, in turn, will purchase the certificate from GoDaddy for you and perform domain verification of it. They will further maintain the certificate in Azure Key Vault and manage certificate renewals.
If you use Azure Key Vault, you can import a PKCS12 certificate from it. This certificate must be exported as a password-protected PFX file, contain a private key that's at least 2,048 bit long, and the certificate chain must contain all intermediate certificates.
If you have already bought a compliant private certificate from a provider, you can upload it into Azure. You can also upload a public certificate that you own as well, but you will only be able to use this for accessing remote resources.
