I have this task to create a SharePoint App without configuring a new domain or a sub domain in DNS as mentioned here .

Is there any workaround by which we can create the app in the same domain as host web. ?


No. The SharePoint-Hosted App infrastructure requires that each app be in its own domain for identification and isolation.

Instead of building an App you could build a Sandbox Solution with site pages and JavaScript. It would give you effectively the same result without the need for the DNS changes.

  • Thanks for the help Rob. Same would apply for Provider Hosted apps too? – Thomas Mathew Apr 9 '15 at 7:42
