Editing Resource Record Sets

The following procedure explains how to edit resource record sets using the Amazon Route 53 console. For information about how to edit 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 in a couple of minutes. In rare circumstances, propagation can take up to 30 minutes.

To edit resource record sets using the Amazon Route 53 console

  1. If you're not editing alias resource record sets, skip to step 2.

    If you're editing alias resource record sets that route traffic to ELB Classic or Application Load Balancers, and if you created your Amazon Route 53 hosted zone and your load balancer using different accounts, perform the procedure Getting the DNS Name for an ELB Load Balancer to get the DNS name for the load balancer.

    If you're editing alias resource record sets for any other AWS resource, skip to step 2.

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

  3. On the Hosted Zones page, double-click the row for the hosted zone in which you want to edit resource record sets.

  4. Double-click the row for the resource record set that you want to edit.

  5. Enter the applicable values. For more information, see Values that You Specify When You Create or Edit Amazon Route 53 Resource Record Sets.

  6. Click Save Record Set.

  7. If you're editing multiple resource record sets, repeat steps 4 through 6.
