I want to increase the limit of Lightsail domains with Route 53



As I said, I want to increase the domain limit with Route 53. I would need help. From what I can see in the Hosted Zones section of Route 53, I can only create records for subdomains of the main domain.

Do I need to create more Hosted Zones? For each domain? Then how do I redirect the new domain in Route 53 to my Lightsail instance?

I hope I expressed myself fairly correctly. In any case, I would need to be able to add more than 6 different domains (not subdomains) to my Lightsail instance.

Can someone help me?

Thank you,

Yes, you can use Route 53 with Lightsail resources if you need more than the 6 DNS zones quota in Lightsail.

In Route 53 for each domain you would need to create a new hosted-zone (hosted-zones in Route 53 are same as DNS zones in Lightsail) doc ref for creating hosted zone

Then you can add records to the hosted-zone with the IPs or endpoint-names of your Lightsail resources.

e.g. if you wanted your Route 53 hosted-zone example.com to route traffic to a Lightsail instance with public IPv4, you would create a record under the hosted-zone with empty sub-domain, record-type A, and value Pick your desired TTL and keep Simple Routing default routing policy. Repeat the steps for your other domains like foo.com, bar.com, etc.

Hope this helps!
