Get the website in Azure VM public access by name

I have created a VM in Azure cloud and created a website in it.   (Windows 2016 Datacenter server . IIS site)  .  I can access a website in VM using IP .  ( LIke http://13.67.30.100/Mysite) . This need to be accessed by many users within my customer's company .  So what should be done ( Either at Azure or at the customer company ) for the site to be available by name instead of IP   like http://MyApp/Mysite  ( I don't want the to join www like www.myapp.com  . This is to be available in just the company intranet)  

I know on an individual level, I can do the hostname mapping  in the host file.  But I am looking at a company level solution

here are many ways you can achieve this

If you want to access it with public name space, create host (A) record on public dns server

if not, you can create record with internal active directory dns server
