The majority of existing customers own an on-premise DNS system. When you initialize resources on the AWS platform, AWS provides DNS service through Amazon Route 53. In this lab, we will experiment with building a DNS hybrid system that will allow you to integrate with your existing DNS on-premise system with **DNS service ** of Amazon Route 53.

Route 53

Route 53 provides some DNS capabilities such as: public DNS domain registration, ability to create private DNS zones, DNS hybrid engine and domain name resolution. With domain name resolution, Route 53 Resolver can perform recursive lookups against public DNS systems.

In Route 53, the Route 53 Resolver service provides three tools to enable a hybrid DNS architecture between your DNS on-premise system and AWS. These three tools are:

  • Outbound Endpoints: DNS queries from Route 53 Resolver to your DNS on-premise system will be sent from Outbound Endpoints.
  • Inbound Endpoints: Inbound endpoints act as targets for DNS queries from your DNS on-premise system to domains hosted on AWS.
  • Route 53 Resolver Rules: With Route 53 Resolver Rules, you can configure Route 53 to forward DNS queries for your specific domains to the DNS system on-premises.
