Preview of SSL for sites hosted on Windows Azure Web Sites Reserved instances with custom domain names

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) helps you secure traffic to your sites with custom domain names hosted on Windows Azure Web Sites.
What is SSL?
SSL is a key piece of technology for companies that want to do business on the web and is used to help secure traffic between the website and the browser. We are announcing support for SNI-based and IP-based SSL certificates for Web Sites Reserved instances. SNI is supported by most modern browsers in use today. SNI-based SSL allows websites without a dedicated IP address, which is a key feature for websites hosted in cloud environments. IP-based SSL works in all browsers. For more information on SSL, please refer to the Web Sites Services webpage.
What does SSL cost?
Refer to the table below for SNI-based and IP-based SSL preview and general availability pricing. For additional pricing information, please see the Pricing Details webpage.
