Feature Description
Amazon CloudFront Distribution Resource Type You can use AWS CloudFormation templates to provision Amazon CloudFront distributions in an AWS CloudFormation stack. For more information, see Amazon CloudFront Distribution Resource Type and Amazon CloudFront Template Snippets.
Amazon Route 53 Record Set Resource Type You can use AWS CloudFormation templates to provision Amazon Route 53 record sets in an AWS CloudFormation stack. Note that before you use AWS CloudFormation to add a recordset to hosted zone, that hosted zone must already be created in Amazon Route 53. AWS CloudFormation does not create new hosted zones. For more information, see Amazon Route 53 Record Set Resource Type and Amazon Route 53 Template Snippets.
URL Shortcuts for Stack Creation You can use a URL to start the AWS Console and open the Create Stack Wizard with a specific template. You can then complete the wizard to launch the stack. The URL has the following format:

https://console.aws.amazon.com/cloudformation/home?region=stackregion#cstack=sn~stackname|turl~stackurl

where

stackregion Specifies region where you want to create the stack.
stackname Specifies the stack name.
stackurl Specifies the URL for the template to load. The template must be located in an Amazon S3 bucket in the same region as stackregion. The template URL must also be in the Amazon S3 path-style format where the host name specifies the region-specific endpoint. For example, the following template URL specifies a template location in the Asia Pacific (Tokyo) Region:

https://s3-ap-northeast-1.amazonaws.com/cloudformation-templates-ap-northeast-1/AutoScaledPHPWebServerWithMultiAZRDS-1.0.0.template

The following example URL will launch the Create Stack Wizard using a stack name of mystack and using the template located at https://s3.amazonaws.com/cloudformation-samples-us-east-1/PHPHelloWorld-1.0.0.template:

https://console.aws.amazon.com/cloudformation/home?region=us-east-1#cstack=sn~mystack|turl~https://s3.amazonaws.com/cloudformation-samples-us-east-1/PHPHelloWorld-1.0.0.template
