In this article, I will take you through the steps to create public IP Address using Azure Portal but before that it is important to understand why we need to create Public IP Address. If you ever want to connect to any Azure resources on public Internet then you always need to do it through Public IP Addresses. Hence you need to create a public ip address in the first place before you even attempt to connect to an azure resource. It comes in two SKUs - Basic and Standard. You can choose whichever suits you best. Then you will also have the option to create addresses on the regional and global scale.
How to Create Public IP Address Using Azure Portal
Step 1: Prerequisites
a) You should have a valid Azure Account.
b) You should have a valid subscription.
c) You should have access to create Resources from Azure Portal.
