Locate your domain services

Applies To: Azure, Windows Intune

You cannot create domains in Azure Active Directory (AD). You can, however, as an administrator, add the names of the custom domains that you already own to Azure AD. In other words, when you add a domain name to Azure AD, you must already own this domain and you must change some of the DNS records for this domain. If you don’t already own a domain name, you can purchase one from a domain name registrar. For more information, see Internet domain management in Azure AD.

Your domain name registrar usually, but not always, manages the DNS records for your domain. If your registrar does not manage your DNS records, you’ll need to locate your DNS service provider. If you don’t recall the domain name registrar where you registered your domain, use the following procedures to locate the correct registrar.
