Azure DNS private zones
18 April 2018
Azure announces Public Preview of Azure DNS private zones, a key feature addition to Azure DNS. This capability provides a reliable, secure DNS service to manage and resolve names in a VNet, without the need for you to create and manage custom DNS solution.
This feature allows you to use your company domain rather than the Azure-provided names available today, provides name resolution for VMs within a VNet and across VNets. Additionally, you can configure zones names with a split-horizon view – allowing for a private and a public DNS zone to share the same name.
Zone and record management is done using the Azure REST APIs, SDKs, PowerShell and CLI.
The feature has been available for a few months now in Managed Preview. Some of the previous limitations with the Managed Preview have been lifted, notably the region-wide availability. With this release the feature is now available in all Public Azure regions
