The Main Route53 Overview
This is where you control the overall aspects of your interaction with Route53. You use the main module to enter your AWS access keys and decide what mode you want to operate in.
- ➦You can setup your DNS here on easyDNS to automatically get pushed into the Route53 cloud.
- ➦You can define a "Remote Ping Host" which will create a mechanism for you to progmatically trigger easyDNS to import your DNS from Route53.
- ➦Or you can have each system run independently, deciding to manually Import or Export the DNS data either way at your discretion.
When you create a hosted zone within Route53, your domain is assigned 4 nameservers from within the Amazon AWS cloud.
You can activate any combination of your Route53 assigned nameservers, with the easyDNS nameservers.
Route53 Control Functions
DNS Editor GUI
This is where you can easily use a GUI interface to manipulate your actual DNS records and have them update in the Route53 system. You can add/create/modify A Records / Hostnames, CNAMES / Aliases, MX Handlers, IPv6, SRV and TXT records.
(You can also edit SOA and NS records but they tend to have no effect on the Route53 side.)
If we are your Registrar only, you would set this to automatically export to the Route53 cloud (our nameservers will not serve this data).
If you have a DNS Hosting service level with us, then this data will be live on our nameservers, and can be automatically exported to Route53, or manually exported.
