aws route53

CLI for AWS Route53 - Route 53 is a highly available and scalable Domain Name System (DNS) web service. More information:

  • List all hosted zones, private and public:

aws route53 list-hosted-zones

  • Show all records in a zone:

aws route53 list-resource-record-sets --hosted-zone-id {{zone_id}}

  • Create a new, public zone using a request identifier to retry the operation safely:

aws route53 create-hosted-zone --name {{name}} --caller-reference {{request_identifier}}

  • Delete a zone (if the zone has non-defaults SOA and NS records the command will fail):

aws route53 delete-hosted-zone --id {{zone_id}}
