DNS lookup to public address

Last Modified: 2016-01-17
Hi all, I was wondering how to achieve the following:

Customers internal domain is company.local
I'm setting up a managed WiFi service for them. For this to work they need to be able to resolve the following:
http://unifi:8080 to my public cloud server which is located in an Azure instance.

I have created a CNAM dns record in my godaddy account for the following: ubnt.provider.tech

This resolves to the public IP address of the server, and i'm able to browse etc without any issues.

How do I configure the customers DNS server to resolve "unifi" to "ubnt.provider.tech" ?
