Amazon Route 53 is a scalable cloud DNS web service hosted in AWS. When DNS resource record data is imported into Address Manager, a private and public Route 53 DNS view is created in Address Manager. The associated zone, subzones, and resource records are populated in the respective areas. In the following image, multiple DNS resource records have been created in the AWS Route 53 private hosted zone.
In the following image, the Route 53 private hosted zone data is populated in Address
Manager under the Route 53 private view.
- If an IP address is associated to an A or AAAA record and the IP address exists within an imported VPC network from AWS, a Host record is created in Address Manager. If the IP address does not exist within an imported VPC network, a Generic record is created in Address Manager.
- If a CNAME, SRV, or MX hostname does not exist within Address Manager, an external host record is created based on the hostname in Address Manager.
