I am trying use my domain that is hosted on afrihost and set up the DNS so people access my azure website.

I am looking through some examples but they mention DNS's that I don't see in Afrihost and I don't want to take a chance editing DNS records and messing it.

Can anyone offer some advise or an article I can have a look at that would help me out?

If you're not feeling confident with DNS changes just take a screenshot of the info in your clientzone for starters; just the type of record (CName/A/MX/etc) and where it points to so that they can be recreated if you need to revert changes. After that, simply read up on the types of DNS records and what they do. I believe an Azure DNS config is pretty straightforward and guided. Just create the records it specifies in the tutorial for a different host if yours isn't listed. DNS records generally behave the same way regardless of the host.
