Starting today, you can add resource records to your Amazon Route 53 hosted zones beyond the free tier limit using pay-as-you-go pricing. Previously, Route 53 customers could add a maximum of 10,000 resource records to any hosted zone for free. Customers who required more than 10,000 resource records in a hosted zone had to contact AWS Support to request a custom pricing plan. With this launch, customers can add resource records beyond the 10,000-record free tier without requiring a custom pricing plan. Now, any resource records you add to a hosted zone beyond the 10,000-record free tier will automatically be charged at the rate of $0.0015 per resource record per month, making it easier to scale your resource records up or down as needed.
