  1. Very impressive presentation. Obviously all nicely integrated from VS to Azure, where it seems you even create your domain. (
    I have a domain name already, completely different server, which I would like for my ASP application. Do I need to transfer the domain name to Azure?
    Purely doing a relink from the existing website would not be a proper solution.
    I would be grateful for info/link where I can learn more about this.
    Thank you.

  2. Cool video!
    But what does "attach debugger" do in the cloud explorer (at 14:48)?
    Does it simply run the deployed website while having the debugger running in visual studio? If that's the case, how can I do the same with an app made with visual studio, but deployed through an azure DevOps Pipeline? Does it only work if I deploy it via Visual Studio? Thanks!
