How to create an external dns server with Amazon Route 53

Posted by Xaus Xavier Nadal 9th on December 2014

Create an external dns server with Amazon Route 53 is as simple as having Amazon AWS account and follow the steps below will show you, but first of all, what is Route 53 and what is Route53?

Amazon Route 53 It is a DNS service in the public cloud.

Amazon Route 53Amazon Route 53 normally used to do load balancing (ELB) between instances EC2, mapping instances EC2 or to simply map buckets S3, but we in this article we will use the power of a DNS Cloud for securing our environment, for have a scalability in such a sensitive service like DNS and provide high availability.

But Amazon Route 53 goes further and leaves us the possibility by Health Check to monitor the life and performance of our Web applications, for example if you have 2 instances EC2 (web server) and one of the webs stops we operate can by Route 53 immediately redirect traffic to another instance to continue offering service.

It also leaves us the possibility to buy domains (Although as personal comment I would like more extensions were available and better prices). But you know that when closer the DNS server, the domain web server fewer hops should make a customer and better latencies have to open the web before the competition always remember the good practices of SEO.

Benefits of having a DNS server on the public cloud as a service.

1.- not affected by viruses (In the absence of an operating system controlled by us is safer by definition).

 

2.- No system updates (We saved maintenance).

 

3.-No failures have 0-day in Microsoft Windows.

 

4.- And as I said the CTO of NASA "We rely more on Amazon than in our own infrastructure for securing our systems".

 

5.- Operating costs tend to 0.

 

6.- The cost of mounting an instance EC2 t2.micro is like riding 27 areas (domains) on Amazon Route 53.
