Azure DNS Private Resolver: Now in Preview

For some time now, Microsoft has been offering two different kinds of DNS Zones: private and public. Firstly, Azure Private DNS provides a safe and reliable service for your virtual network, as well as customizing your domain name during deployment. 

On the other hand, on Azure Public DNS, you are hosted on Azure’s global network, which provides a fast and effective performance. With them, you can choose to host your DNS records depending on your organization’s needs.
