Host your domain in Azure for outstanding performance and availability • Host your DNS alongside your apps • Ultra-high availability • Fast DNS queries • Rapid updates to DNS records • Supports all common DNS record types
With Azure DNS, you can host your DNS domains in Azure—so you can manage your DNS records using the same credentials and billing and support contract as your other Azure services. This lets you seamlessly integrate Azure-based services with corresponding DNS updates, streamlining the end-to-end deployment process.
Azure DNS uses a global network of name servers to provide fast responses to DNS queries. Because we use Anycast networking, DNS queries are automatically routed to the closest name servers for the best possible performance.
Microsoft’s global network of name servers has the scale and redundancy to ensure ultra-high availability for your domains. With Azure DNS, you can be sure your DNS will always be available.
When you add a new DNS record, the Azure DNS name servers are updated in just a few seconds—so you don’t have to wait long before that DNS record can be used.
A single player for all your playback needs
Azure Media Player automatically picks the best format for a browser or device, leveraging the dynamic packaging capabilities of Azure Media Services to play adaptive streaming content in formats like MPEG-DASH, Smooth Streaming, or Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS). Media Player is also designed to pick the right technology platform—HTML5 (MSE/EME), Flash, or Silverlight.
Media Player supports content secured with either Microsoft PlayReady digital rights management (DRM) technology or Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 128-bit clear-key encryption.
The new Azure Media Player Diagnostics Center makes it easier to debug player issues and monitor the quality of your adaptive bitrate media streams. It shows you diagnostic player information and can download logs for further debugging.
