Deleting Records

The following procedure explains how to delete records using the Route 53 console. For information about how to delete records using the Route 53 API, see ChangeResourceRecordSets in the Amazon Route 53 API Reference.

Note

Your changes to records take time to propagate to the 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 Route 53 name servers within 60 seconds.

To delete records

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

  2. On the Hosted Zones page, double-click the row for the hosted zone that contains records that you want to delete.

  3. In the list of records, select the record that you want to delete.

    To select multiple, consecutive records, click the first row, hold the Shift key, and click the last row. To select multiple, nonconsecutive records, click the first row, hold the Ctrl key, and click additional rows.

    You cannot delete the records that have a value of NS or SOA for Type.

  4. Click Delete Record Set.

  5. Click OK to confirm.
