Azure DNS name (servername.location.cloudapp.azure.com) VS internal FQDN (hostname.domain name eg servername.acad.ac.uk) - are they both FQDN?

Hi all,a somewhat petty question that is bugging me.When I created a VM in our azure subscription, it has the DNS name in the format of servername.location.cloudapp.azure.comWhich apparently is a FQDN(where servername is the hostname and location could be northeurope etc)However when I log onto the server and check its name via ping -a IP or full computer name it comes out as as:servername.acad.ac.uk(where acad is generic UK institution)Apparently that is a FQDN as well.Is there concept of internal and external (Azure) FQDN - or what I am misunderstanding?many thanks
