Amazon Route 53 www record

Daniel Powell asked:

I’m looking to move our current dns to route 53 due to some limitations with our provider.

Currently we have A records with network solutions for:

  • www
  • @ (None)
  • * (All others)
  • other subdomains…

From intial looks at the route 53 interface there doesnt seem to be any built in option to specify the www, @ or * records, do I still need to create these, and if so what is the best way to do it.

My answer:


First read the documentation.

  1. Click on Go to Record Sets.

  2. Click on Create Record Set.

  3. Enter in the appropriate values.
