AWS Route 53 – Mapping Domain Name to AWS DNS Servers Part -1

There may be more than one way to route a DNS to a cloud service provider let me just take you through one way to do it in simple steps

Summary:

  1. Register a domain name
  2. Configure a hosted zone in AWS Route 53
  3. Create a record set with A,NS,SOA records (based on your requirement)
  4. AWS route 53 gives you a set of DNS servers that you could use those name servers and update them in your domain register database.(go daddy or somebody similar)
  5. Once updated you are all set(it might take somewhere between 24 to 48 hours for the DNS to get updated)
