Multiple questions about Route 53


I have a customer asking the following questions about Route 53:

Does Amazon route 53 offer the following:

  • Full registrar services?
  • UK specific DNS suffixes?
  • Unlimited DNS queries?
  • 2 factor-authentication?
  • Sub-domain delegation?
  • Single sign on?
  • Sell ssl certificates?

Some of the things of your list are not DNS related, so Route 53 won't help but you might find something in other AWS services, below my quick comments:

Full registrar services?

Here is the list of Domains you can use Route 53 as a registrar:

UK specific DNS suffixes?

Search on the page above.

Unlimited DNS queries?

There isn't a limit, however you pay per query.  (customer may be asking for an unlimited plan)

2 factor-authentication?

The access to  the Route 53 console (for DNS administration) is controlled by IAM and therefore you can enable 2 factor authentication.

Sub-domain delegation?


Single sign on?

Yes, again the access to  the Route 53 console (for DNS administration) is controlled by IAM and thus you can implement SSO:

Sell ssl certificates?

Route 53 don't, we have another service for that , it's called AWS Certificate Manager, however we don't sell certificates, we give them for FREE :)
