Delete the Amazon Route 53 Hosted Zone

Before you delete the hosted zone, you must delete the record sets that you created. You don't need to delete the NS and SOA records; these are automatically deleted when you delete the hosted zone.

To delete the record sets

  1. Open the Amazon Route 53 console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/route53/.

  2. In the list of domain names, select the check box that corresponds to your domain name, and then choose Go to Record Sets.

  3. In the list of record sets, select the check boxes that correspond to the A records that you created. The type of each record set is listed in the Type column.

  4. Choose Delete Record Set.

  5. When prompted for confirmation, choose Confirm.
