DisassociateVPCFromHostedZone - Amazon Route 53


Disassociates an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) from an Amazon Route 53 private hosted zone. Note the following:

  • You can't disassociate the last Amazon VPC from a private hosted zone.

  • You can't convert a private hosted zone into a public hosted zone.

  • You can submit a DisassociateVPCFromHostedZone request using either the account that created the hosted zone or the account that created the Amazon VPC.

  • Some services, such as AWS Cloud Map and Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) automatically create hosted zones and associate VPCs with the hosted zones. A service can create a hosted zone using your account or using its own account. You can disassociate a VPC from a hosted zone only if the service created the hosted zone using your account.

    When you run DisassociateVPCFromHostedZone, if the hosted zone has a value for OwningAccount, you can use DisassociateVPCFromHostedZone. If the hosted zone has a value for OwningService, you can't use DisassociateVPCFromHostedZone.


When revoking access, the hosted zone and the Amazon VPC must belong to the same partition. A partition is a group of AWS Regions. Each AWS account is scoped to one partition.

The following are the supported partitions:

  • aws - AWS Regions

  • aws-cn - China Regions

  • aws-us-gov - AWS GovCloud (US) Region
