With the release of easyRoute53, easyDNS becomes the first and only ICANN Accredited Registrar with native support for domain names using Amazon's Route53 DNS.

Our easyRoute53 tool is a bridge between your easyDNS and Amazon Web Services accounts. You can use our interface to configure your zone then automatically push that information to Amazon. You must have an existing Amazon Route53 service to synchronize with before enabling this service.

To use our easyRoute53 service, please do the following:

1. Log into your easyDNS account
2. Click on MANAGE for said domain (this will bring you to the DOMAIN ADMINISTRATION page)

NOTE: If AMAZON ROUTE 53 does not show up in your control panel, please make sure it is enabled within your preferences. Click on PREFERENCES on the left sidebar menu, go to the INTEGRATIONS section, and choose YES to enable the feature.

Local
Displays "Activated" once you have created a local entry for your domain.

Access Key ID
Here you enter your AWS authentication tokens. You should probably create a separate set of Auth credentials for each domain you use here.

Secret Access Key
You manage your Amazon AWS Access Creds here.

Configuration
This controls the way easyDNS and Route53 interface:

  • Automatically Export easyDNS Zonedata TO Route53 - whenever you modify it here.
  • Do nothing automatically - don't automatically export data, and don't enable the automatic triggering of imports from Route53.

AWS Zone ID
Unless you have already created your Hosted Zone on the Route53 side, this will be auto-populated when you use the Create function below. If you have already created your Hosted Zone, then enter that Hosted Zone Id in the field here in the edit screen.

ANAME Export
When importing from Amazon to easyDNS, zone apex alias records will be imported as ANAME records. You can choose to export ANAME records from easyDNS to Amazon as A records or you can skip the export of ANAME records.

NS Export
Export NS records.
