Route 53 Hosted Zone not appearing outside of AWS after removal of DNS zone from lightsail and adding back to Route 53

0

I built a POC using the Wordpress offering with Lightsail. As part of that, we migrated a domain name from Route 53 to Lightsail's DNS. The site was accessible via wordpress/lightsail. When the POC was complete, we decided not to move forward with Lightsail and deleted the instance. The domain reappeared in AWS Route 53 with a SOA, and 4 NS records. If I run the "test record" feature in Route 53\hosted zone, I get "no error." Route 53 does not let you delete NS record so I am stuck with what is there.

If I query my domain NS via DnsChecker.org or MxToolBox, I get no response for NS or SOA. I can't get to my domain from the Internet. This has been two weeks or appox 14+ days. Any ideas?

You would have to first REGISTER your domain. This is where you tell your registrar of those NS records. You don't have to use AWS Route53 for this, but that might be the most straight forward option if you don't already have one. Process is explained in https://docs.aws.amazon.com/Route53/latest/DeveloperGuide/domain-register.html

The domain has been registered through Route 53 for months. We have 24 registered and I had to get special approval to go over 20. I even deleted the hosted zone and recreated it.
