A good Azure IP addressing schema provides flexibility, room for growth, and integration with on-premises networks. The schema ensures that communication works for deployed resources, minimizes public exposure of systems, and gives the organization flexibility in its network. If not properly designed, systems might not be able to communicate, and additional work will be required to remediate.

Use virtual network peering to enable communication across virtual networks in a way that's secure and minimally complex.

Create a DNS zone for your domain name. Create DNS records to map the URL to an IP address. Test that the domain name resolves to your web server.
