Azure DNS Custom Domain names=> Are they limted to azure products?

Hi there, I am thinking about paying for a custom domain DNS name inside azure=> App Services tab, click the name of your app, select Settings, and then select Custom domains

Will it be possible to point that DNS to external resources? Or it is limited to point only to Azure products? I have some servers wih public IPs i want to map to that DNS, will it be possible with azure?

Many thanks.

Custom domain is managed in Azure DNS zone (documentation) or by your DNS provider. In App Service you do only settings for acceptance for URL requests.

This means your app will accept a public domain query - for example: www.mydomain.com

So can I book a new domain name , inside azure, and then point it to an external resource?

Thanks

You can get your domain from Azure and point it another IP or CNAME so you can point it to an external resource not only Azure products

Oks, with the answer of Vladimir I still have doubts. So inside azure is possible to point the domain name to external resources? Do you have a screenshot?

Azure custom domain can point to external servers. You can change the NS records to point it to different servers.

None of these answers seem to answer your actual question.

Yes, you can have records in an Azure DNS zone that point to resources outside of Azure. Your DNS records can point anywhere you want.
