I'd like to use Route 53 as my DNS service. How do I configure Route 53 to route traffic to and from my domain?

You can use Route 53 as your DNS provider, regardless of whether your domain is hosted with AWS or another registrar, or whether you're routing traffic to AWS resources or to resources outside of AWS.

To use Route 53 as your domain service, you must create a Route 53 hosted zone—see Creating a Public Hosted Zone.

If you're using another provider's DNS service now, but you want to use Route 53 instead, see Migrating DNS Service for an Existing Domain to Amazon Route 53.

DNS, Route 53, hosted zone, migrate
