Deleting Resource Record Sets

The following procedure explains how to delete resource record sets using the Amazon Route 53 console. For information about how to delete resource record sets using the Amazon Route 53 API, see ChangeResourceRecordSets in the Amazon Route 53 API Reference.

Note

Your changes to resource record sets take time to propagate to the Amazon Route 53 DNS servers. Currently, the only way to verify that changes have propagated is to use the GetChange API action. Changes generally propagate to all Amazon Route 53 name servers within 60 seconds.

To delete resource record sets

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Amazon Route 53 console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/route53/.

  2. On the Hosted Zones page, double-click the row for the hosted zone that contains resource record sets that you want to delete.

  3. In the list of resource record sets, select the resource record set that you want to delete.

    To select multiple, consecutive resource record sets, click the first row, hold the Shift key, and click the last row. To select multiple, nonconsecutive resource record sets, click the first row, hold the Ctrl key, and click additional rows.

    You cannot delete the resource record sets that have a value of NS or SOA for Type.

  4. Click Delete Record Set.

  5. Click OK to confirm.
