Why Use Azure to Host your DNS?

One of the foremost benefits of using Azure for hosting your DNS is the centralization that it provides for management tools and name resolution that you will need for your network. By hosting your DNS on Azure, you can use the same credentials across other Azure services, making it DNS record management simpler. You can also manage DNS zones within the Azure infrastructure, instead of having to come up with your own custom DNS solution.

Should you require name resolution within your DNS deployment, Azure has the ability to provide local name resolution for resources within the same VNet (virtual network provided by Azure) or across different VNets. In a scenario where you need to allow different VNets to communicate with each other, or resolve names between two or more different networks, you can establish conditional forwarding rules to send DNS requests to the correct VNet for name resolution.
