ListHostedZonesByVPC - Amazon Route 53


Lists all the private hosted zones that a specified VPC is associated with, regardless of which AWS account or AWS service owns the hosted zones. The HostedZoneOwner structure in the response contains one of the following values:

  • An OwningAccount element, which contains the account number of either the current AWS account or another AWS account. Some services, such as AWS Cloud Map, create hosted zones using the current account.

  • An OwningService element, which identifies the AWS service that created and owns the hosted zone. For example, if a hosted zone was created by Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS), the value of Owner is

ListHostedZonesByVPC returns the hosted zones associated with the specified VPC and does not reflect the hosted zone associations to VPCs via Route 53 Profiles. To get the associations to a Profile, call the ListProfileResourceAssociations API.


When listing private hosted zones, the hosted zone and the Amazon VPC must belong to the same partition where the hosted zones were created. 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

Request Syntax

GET /2013-04-01/hostedzonesbyvpc?maxitems=MaxItems&nexttoken=NextToken&vpcid=VPCId&vpcregion=VPCRegion HTTP/1.1

URI Request Parameters

The request uses the following URI parameters.


(Optional) The maximum number of hosted zones that you want Amazon Route 53 to return. If the specified VPC is associated with more than MaxItems hosted zones, the response includes a NextToken element. NextToken contains an encrypted token that identifies the first hosted zone that Route 53 will return if you submit another request.


If the previous response included a NextToken element, the specified VPC is associated with more hosted zones. To get more hosted zones, submit another ListHostedZonesByVPC request.

For the value of NextToken, specify the value of NextToken from the previous response.

If the previous response didn't include a NextToken element, there are no more hosted zones to get.
