In my last post. I demonstrated how to create a static website using the Azure Portal. However, many of those steps are much quicker using the Azure CLI. For today’s post, I’ll show you how to do just that.
In my last post, we created a DNS zone and added a record pointing back to the public IP address of my home broadband connection.
That’s all well and good, but since it’s not a static IP, it can of course change - so we want to be able to keep the record up to date with the current IP.
Today I’ll show you one way of doing that, using a very lightweight updater client (windows or linux) that uses an Azure PowerShell function (ok, I might be a bit of a fanboy when it comes to those!) to update the DNS record-set entry.
The more that I use Azure cloud services, the more I think of ways to use them, either to do something new, or to replace some process or service I already use.
Today, I’ll show you how you can use Azure DNS to provide a Dynamic DNS capability at significantly reduced cost compared to services like No-IP and DynDNS. A future post will automate the process of keeping the DNS entry up-to-date.
