Azure DNS or DNS is responsible for translating (or resolving) a website or service name to its IP address.

Azure DNS is a hosting service for DNS domains, providing name resolution using Microsoft Azure infrastructure.

Hosting your domains in Azure, We can manage our DNS records using the same credentials, APIs, tools, and billing as we are using for other Azure services.

Advantage and Feature of azure DNS

Azure DNS are hosted on azure global network of DNS, So we can use to any cast networking and each DNS query is answered by the closed available DNS server.
It will provide fast performance and high availability for your domains.

AnyCast is a process for routing network traffic where the sender delivers packets to a destination that is nearest to sender location.

Applications requiring automatic DNS management can integrate with the service via the REST API and SDKs.

Creating  Azure DNS Server

Please follow the below notes before creating a DNS zone in Azure DNS:

  • The name of the zone must be unique within the resource group, and the zone must not exist already. Otherwise, the operation fails.
  • The same zone name can be reused in a different resource group or a different Azure subscription.
  • Where multiple zones share the same name, each instance is assigned different name server addresses.
  • Only one set of addresses can be configured with the domain name registrar.

DNS zones
