When you create a hosted zone, Route 53 assigns four name servers to your hosted zone; these four name servers are called the delegation set. To ensure that the Domain Name System routes queries for your domain to the Route 53 name servers, update your registrar's or your DNS service's NS records for the domain to replace the current name servers with the names of the four Route 53 name servers in the delegation set for your hosted zone. The method that you use to update the NS records depends on which registrar or DNS service you're using.
You can get the name servers in the delegation set for a hosted zone using the Route 53 console or using the
API action. See the applicable topic:
To get the name servers in the delegation set for a hosted zone using the Route 53 console
Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Amazon Route 53 console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/route53/.
In the Route 53 console, click the row for the hosted zone for which you want to display name servers.
The Delegation Set field in the right pane lists the name servers that Route 53 assigned to the hosted zone when you created it. Update your registrar's or your DNS service's NS records with the names of these name servers.
To get the name servers in the delegation set for a hosted zone, you use the
GetHostedZone API action to
GET request to the
2012-12-12/hostedzone/<hosted zone ID> resource. The name servers
that Route 53 assigned to the hosted zone when you created it are listed in the
DelegationSet element of the response.
For more information about the
GetHostedZone API action, see
GET GetHostedZone in the Amazon Route 53 API Reference.
The delegation set containing your name servers is shown in the following example response.
