Working On DNS Zone Using Azure

Introduction to DNS Zone

A DNS zone is used to host the records for a particular domain. In order to start the hosting, you need to have DNS zone. Any DNS record, created for a particular domain, remains inside a DNS zone for that domain.

To complete this article, you need to have an Azure account. If you're new to Azure, I recommend reading Introduction to Microsoft Azure.

The following are important steps to be followed in order to create a DNS zone using Azure Portal.

1. Sign in to the Azure portal.

2. On the Hub menu, click New >> Networking >> DNS zone, for opening the DNS zone blade, as shown below.


3. In the DNS zone blade, click Add. If you don't see your subscription, click Refresh. This will open the Create DNS zone blade.


4. Here, name your DNS zone and specify the resource group that you want to use. 

Note- You can either create a new resource group, or select the one that already exists.


5. From the Location dropdown, specify the location of the resource group. Note that this setting refers to the location of the resource group, not the location for DNS zone. You can leave the "Pin to dashboard" checkbox selected if you want to easily locate your new zone on your dashboard.

6. Now, click Create. It takes some time to configure the DNS zone in Azure Management portal. Now, open the DNS zone blade and click on All settings to open the settings blade for the DNS zone.

Here, you can see the record sets for the DNS zone.

That was all about working with DNS zone on Azure portal. Stay tuned to C-sharp Corner for more articles related to Azure.
