To create a new hosted zone, send a
POST request to the
/Route 53 API version/hostedzoneresource. The request body must include a document with a
CreateHostedZoneRequestelement. The response returns the
CreateHostedZoneResponseelement that contains metadata about the hosted zone.
Amazon Route 53 automatically creates a default SOA record and four NS records for the zone. The NS records in the hosted zone are the name servers you give your registrar to delegate your domain to. For more information about SOA and NS records, see NS and SOA Records that Amazon Route 53 Creates for a Hosted Zone in the Amazon Route 53 Developer Guide.
When you create a zone, its initial status is
PENDING. This means that
it is not yet available on all DNS servers. The status of the zone changes to
when the NS and SOA records are available on all Amazon Route 53 DNS servers.
When trying to create a hosted zone using a reusable delegation set, you could specify an optional DelegationSetId, and Route53 would assign those 4 NS records for the zone, instead of alloting a new one.

This is the name you have registered with your DNS registrar. You should ask your
registrar to change the authoritative name servers for your domain to the set of
