Azure DNS pricing
Host your domain in Azure for outstanding performance and availability
Azure DNS allows you to host your DNS domain in Azure, so you can manage your DNS records using the same credentials, billing and support contract as your other Azure services. Zones can be either public or private, where Private DNS Zones (in Managed Preview) are only visible to VMs that are in your virtual network. Our global network of name servers uses Anycast routing to provide outstanding performance and availability.
US government entities are eligible to purchase Azure Government services from a licensing solution provider with no upfront financial commitment or directly through a pay-as-you-go online subscription.
Important: The price in R$ is merely a reference; this is an international transaction and the final price is subject to exchange rates and the inclusion of IOF taxes. An eNF will not be issued.
Azure Germany is available to customers and partners who have already purchased this, doing business in the European Union (EU), the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) and in the United Kingdom (UK).

|Additional hosted DNS zones (over 25)||$- per zone per month2|
|First billion DNS queries/month||$- per million3|

A domain is a unique name in the domain name system, for example “contoso.com”.
A DNS zone is used to host the DNS records for a particular domain. For example, the domain contoso.com may contain a number of DNS records, such as mail.contoso.com (for a mail server) and www.contoso.com (for a website).
Azure DNS allows you to host a DNS zone and thereby manage the DNS records for a domain in Azure.
You do not need to purchase a domain to host a DNS zone in Azure DNS. You can create a DNS zone at any time without owning the domain name.
However, you will need to purchase the domain name if you want to link your DNS zone into the global DNS hierarchy – this enables DNS queries from anywhere in the world to find your DNS zone and be answered with your DNS records.
No, Azure DNS does not currently support purchasing of domain names. To purchase domains, you should use a third-party domain name registrar, who will typically charge a small annual fee.
