    1. Microsoft could be a provider of domain registrations.

      Currently we use Registro.br, Godaddy, 101Domain, Amazon Route 53, Google Domains among others for domain registrations. Microsoft could be a provider of domain registrations. It would be another service that would add to the cloud services already offered by Microsoft. Having everything centralized would be ideal, all in one invoice and customer loyalty.

    2. Allow single top level domain for private zone name

      Allow to create private DNS zone like .lan. Currently zone names require 2 or more labels (foo.lan).

      Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature list and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature

    3. Support LOC records in Azure public DNS zones

      LOC records provide geographical information useful for planning, debugging, etc. Ideally, such support would include both custom LOC records for on-premises domains, subdomains, and hosts, and the option of using a LOC record matching the Azure location of a given public IP.

    4. Support SSHFP records in Azure DNS zones

      Since Windows now supports OpenSSH natively, as well as Linux and other clients/servers on the same network, supporting this standard for server authentication seems like an obvious win.

    5. Add support for additional expected status codes in Azure Traffic Manager

      Please consider adding support for additional expected status codes in Azure Traffic Manager. As it stands today, only status codes of 200-299 or 301 are supported. However, my monitored workload is expected to return a 401. As such, I'm forced to use the less accurate TCP method for monitoring my endpoints.

    6. Support Azure Traffic Manager endpoints that are nested and external to allow us to use alias records

      We have an Apex domain that needs to point to Traffic Manager. We use Traffic Manager nested profiles.
      We want to use alias records to point to our DNS alias record to Traffic manager. This requires using external endpoints in traffic manager.
      Problem is that we use nested profiles. It is not possible to create nested external endpoints in traffic manager.

    7. show destination public IPs in Traffic Analytics

      Currently, there is summarization done for destination public IPs and only destination region is visible in Traffic Analytics. Sessions to different public IPs are not separated in the dashboard, hence summary outgoing volume can be viewed only.

    8. add source port for every conversation in Traffic Analytics dashboard

      Currently sessions are summarized for source IP to desination IP+port. There is source port missing in that schema which would allow for recognition of separate conversations to the same client+service pair.

    11. Azure DNS Logs

      Need to access DNS Request Logs on "Azure DNS" service. Actually, we can't search on any logs if we get a DDOS attack on our zone. So, we can receive a big invoice because of huge query number without to know who is requesting our DNS zone.

    12. Offer a domain registry service to go along with Azure DNS

      Very simple convenience feature - when everything else is handled on Azure, why make me involve a third party just for the domain registration?

    13. Adding a Website subdirectory as part of the CNAME

      Creating a CNAME should allow us to point to a Sub Directory for an existing Website.
      For example: I can add a CNAME for a website like www.xyz.com
      But I should also be allowed to point it to the a subdirectory within the Website like www.xyz.com/abc/

      This will help simplify the task and reduce the operational hindrance of using Application Gateways along with DNS CNAME

    14. Allow Private DNS zones to have IP address from a vNet assigned rather than use Azure DNS Its

      This would allow for on-prem resolution for Private DNS. This would avoid having to stand up DNS proxy servers in each vNet all pointing to the same IP address

    15. A # in an endpoint name for Traffic Manager breaks UI

      Seems like there's a bug in the UI once there's a # in the name of an endpoint in Traffic manager, you can't delete it anymore.

    17. Traffic Manager Private Endpoints

      For Traffic Manager, allow us to use private endpoints (load-balancer) for fail over. It looks like someone created a work around using Web Apps but would like to have a supported method for RFC1918 addresses.

    19. Enable Internal Facing Traffic Manager profile

      As of today, Azure Traffic manager supports only Internet facing applications. However, it does allow routing traffic to external end points (DNS/IP) which could be used to route traffic to on-prem resources.

      It would be an essential feature if we could leverage the same features on a vnet.

      Eg. Route internal traffic to multiple on-prem resources (via Express route) based on the service health check.

      Features to support
      1. Enable Internal facing with custom domains (internal domains) & SSL

      There is no clarity on how DNS is resolved under a SQL managed instance VNET and the consequential impact on Windows VMs hosted in the same VNET
