Amazon Route 53

Amazon Route 53 is a highly available and scalable cloud Domain Name System (DNS) web service. It is designed to give developers and businesses an extremely reliable and cost effective way to route end users to Internet applications by translating names like www.example.com into the numeric IP addresses like 192.0.2.1 that computers use to connect to each other. Amazon Route 53 is fully compliant with IPv6 as well.

Amazon Route 53 effectively connects user requests to infrastructure running in AWS – such as Amazon EC2 instances, Elastic Load Balancing load balancers, or Amazon S3 buckets – and can also be used to route users to infrastructure outside of AWS. You can use Amazon Route 53 to configure DNS health checks to route traffic to healthy endpoints or to independently monitor the health of your application and its endpoints. Amazon Route 53 Traffic Flow makes it easy for you to manage traffic globally through a variety of routing types, including Latency Based Routing, Geo DNS, Geoproximity, and Weighted Round Robin—all of which can be combined with DNS Failover in order to enable a variety of low-latency, fault-tolerant architectures. Using Amazon Route 53 Traffic Flow’s simple visual editor, you can easily manage how your end-users are routed to your application’s endpoints—whether in a single AWS region or distributed around the globe. Amazon Route 53 also offers Domain Name Registration – you can purchase and manage domain names such as example.com and Amazon Route 53 will automatically configure DNS settings for your domains.

Features

Traffic Flow

Easy-to-use and cost-effective global traffic management: route end users to the best endpoint for your application based on geoproximity , latency, health, and other considerations.

Latency Based Routing

Route end users to the AWS region that provides the lowest possible latency.

Geo DNS

Route end users to a particular endpoint that you specify based on the end user’s geographic location.

Private DNS for Amazon VPC

Manage custom domain names for your internal AWS resources without exposing DNS data to the public Internet.

DNS Failover

Automatically route your website visitors to an alternate location to avoid site outages.

Health Checks and Monitoring

Amazon Route 53 can monitor the health and performance of your application as well as your web servers and other resources.

Domain Registration

Amazon Route 53 offers domain name registration services, where you can search for and register available domain names or transfer in existing domain names to be managed by Route 53.

CloudFront Zone Apex Support

When using Amazon CloudFront to deliver your website content, visitors to your website can now access your site at the zone apex (or "root domain"). For example, your site can be accessed as example.com instead of www.example.com.

S3 Zone Apex Support

Visitors to your website hosted on Amazon S3 can now access your site at the zone apex (or "root domain").

Management Console

Amazon Route 53 works with the AWS Management Console. This web-based, point-and-click, graphical user interface lets you manage Amazon Route 53 without writing any code at all.

Amazon ELB Integration

Amazon Route 53 is integrated with Elastic Load Balancing (ELB).

Weighted Round Robin

Amazon Route 53 offers Weighted Round Robin (WRR) functionality.

Service Highlights

Highly Available and Reliable

Amazon Route 53 is built using AWS’s highly available and reliable infrastructure. The distributed nature of our DNS servers helps ensure a consistent ability to route your end users to your application. Features such as Amazon Route 53 Traffic Flow help you improve reliability with easy configuration of failover to re-route your users to an alternate location if your primary application endpoint becomes unavailable.

Scalable

Route 53 is designed to automatically scale to handle very large query volumes without any intervention from you.

Designed for use with other Amazon Web Services

Amazon Route 53 is designed to work well with other AWS features and offerings. You can use Amazon Route 53 to map domain names to your Amazon EC2 instances, Amazon S3 buckets, Amazon CloudFront distributions, and other AWS resources. By using the AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) service with Amazon Route 53, you get fine grained control over who can update your DNS data. You can use Amazon Route 53 to map your zone apex (example.com versus www.example.com) to your Elastic Load Balancing instance, Amazon CloudFront distribution, AWS Elastic Beanstalk environment, or Amazon S3 website bucket using a feature called Alias record.

Fast

Using a global anycast network of DNS servers around the world, Amazon Route 53 is designed to automatically route your users to the optimal location depending on network conditions. As a result, the service offers low query latency for your end users, as well as low update latency for your DNS record management needs. Amazon Route 53 Traffic Flow lets you further improve your customers’ experience by running your application in multiple locations around the world and using traffic policies to ensure your end users are routed to the closest healthy endpoint for your application.

Simple

With self-service sign-up, Amazon Route 53 can start to answer your DNS queries within minutes. You can configure your DNS settings with the AWS Management Console or our easy-to-use API. You can also programmatically integrate the Amazon Route 53 API into your overall web application. For instance, you can use Amazon Route 53’s API to create a new DNS record whenever you create a new EC2 instance. Amazon Route 53 Traffic Flow makes it easy to set up sophisticated routing logic for your applications by using the simple visual policy editor.

Cost-Effective

Amazon Route 53 passes on the benefits of AWS’s scale to you. You pay only for the resources you use, such as the number of queries that the service answers for each of your domains, hosted zones for managing domains through the service, and optional features such as traffic policies and health checks, all at a low cost and without minimum usage commitments or any up-front fees.

Secure

By integrating Amazon Route 53 with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM), you can grant unique credentials and manage permissions for every user within your AWS account and specify who has access to which parts of the Amazon Route 53 service.

Flexible

Amazon Route 53 Traffic Flow routes traffic based on multiple criteria, such as endpoint health, geographic location, and latency. You can configure multiple traffic policies and decide which policies are active at any given time. You can create and edit traffic policies using the simple visual editor in the Route 53 console, AWS SDKs, or the Route 53 API. Traffic Flow’s versioning feature maintains a history of changes to your traffic policies, so you can easily roll back to a previous version using the console or API.
