1. Domain Management
Every website needs or has a unique name. Let’s say www.exampleroute53 .com. Route53 will help to register the domain name as per availability and price. Users can also link their existing services like EC2, beanstalk with Route53 service.
Under DNS management users can create multiple hosted zones.
Route53 Traffic Flow allows an AWS customer to control traffic routes using a drag-and-drop graphical user interface to ease traffic management. Route53 Traffic Flow also enables a user to revert to previous traffic routing policies.
A visual tool that lets you easily create policies for multiple endpoints in complex configurations.
To launch the Route 53 Traffic Flow service, create a DNS entry to connect to an endpoint or a traffic management rule. Route 53 Traffic Flow uses rules to dictate how to route traffic. There are four types of rules: weighted, failover, geolocation and latency. Weighted rules direct percentages of traffic to particular endpoints. Failover allows a developer to define a fall-back endpoint if the primary server is not healthy.
3. Availability Monitoring
Route53 health checks monitor the health and performance of your application’s servers, or endpoints from a network of health checkers in locations around the world. You can specify either a domain name or an IP address and a port to create HTTP, HTTPS, and TCP health checks that check the health of the endpoint. To get started, click Create a health check.
- Availability and performance monitoring
You can use Route53 health checks for monitoring and alerts. Each health check provides Cloud Watch metrics that you can view and set alarms on.
- DNS failover
You can also use Route53 health checks for DNS failover by associating health checks with any Route53 DNS resource record set. This lets you route requests based on the health of your endpoints.
4. Domain registration
Amazon Route53 allows you to register a domain name within minutes. It registers a domain name, start by finding one that’s available. Enter the first part of the name (for example in example.com), choose an extension (such as .com or .org), and click Check. Amazon will check if the domain name is available or not.
Click on register button and users are all set to buy domain name after successful payment of domain name.
Users can see all available domain names under Hosted Zone.
