You can now route traffic from your custom root domains (such as to your Lightsail container services using Lightsail DNS. Lightsail DNS already supported creating CNAME records mapping to your container services. With this launch, Lightsail DNS supports aliasing your custom root domain to your container service’s default domain which was not possible before. Thus, you can create an A/AAAA record in your Lightsail hosted DNS zone pointing the zone apex to a container service.

DNS management is free within Lightsail. You can create up to 3 DNS zones and as many records as you want for each DNS zone. You can create DNS records pointing to Lightsail Container services either using the Lightsail console or API. To learn more, see the Amazon Lightsail documentation.
