"Makes hosting domains easier but at an additional cost"

What do you like best?

Azure Portal itself is exquisitely developed and makes managing all resources a child's play. Azure DNS is no exception. You purchase a domain and get to manage all CNAME, A records from within the portal which is great. No additional external management required. It does what it's intended to do straightforwardly. It's great for those who want to bring everything under the Azure hood.

What do you dislike?

The Advanced Management Portal (similar to GoDaddy) that's external to the Azure Portal comes by default with all domains and allows you to achieve pretty much all those tasks. Granted the nameservers aren't managed by Azure at all (the only drawback). However, Azure DNS comes at an extra cost and if you're looking to save money, it's not a feasible option for your business or project.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Domain management can be quite cumbersome and Azure DNS allows you to manage it through the same portal you've admired and become accustomed to. There's frankly no business problem related to it.

The benefits are not tremendous but the added advantage is that it brings domain management under Azure servers so reliability is guaranteed.

"Great interface. Easy to use "

What do you like best?

1) The user interface is very easy to use.

2) It detects the change of ISP really fast.

3) The registration change is very fast, usually within 15 seconds.

4) Excellent operating time and performance, allowing a constant and fast resolution.

What do you dislike?

It can not be detected with an ISP that is having problems with the packets, so the company thinks it should fail and shouts at us, but in reality the ISP has not failed, so it could not be returned. It would be nice if you had a way to set the percentage of packet loss before changing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is ideal for high performance or for geo-balanced DNS needs for a business product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Azure as the DNS server for my domains. It provides us with fast DNS and also masks the IP address of our domain, which makes it less likely to have DDoS attacks.

What Managed DNS Providers solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Very good tool to manage all the DNS across the organization..!"

What do you like best?

The good thing is the Maintenance of the DNS records will be done only in a single shot where we can manage the inventory of all the DNS we use in the organization and once the decommission needs to be done then we will be removing it from the Azure DNS by logging in to it.

What do you dislike?

Currently we are migrating from the IBM provided tool I do not want to name it here so as per the instructions from the vendor this Azure is very perfect for the environment we are working. Also, I will take time for this part to comment

"Simplified domain hosting, worth the extra cost"

What do you like best?

The ease of access and integration with the existing Azure portal make it a breeze to use.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much to dislike. The only potential drawback for some organizations is the additional cost, but the ability to manage everything together in one place inside the Azure portal makes it worthwhile.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It basically just simplifies access to all the domains we own, making it faster and easier to perform necessary updates.
