IP address ranges of Amazon Route 53 servers - Amazon Route 53

IP address ranges of Amazon Route 53 servers

Amazon Web Services (AWS) publishes its current IP address ranges in JSON format. If your firewalls or security groups restrict incoming traffic based on source IP addresses, confirm that your configuration allows traffic from the applicable IP address ranges.

To view the current IP address ranges for Route 53, download ip-ranges.json, and search the file for the following values:

"service": "ROUTE53"

These IP address ranges are used by Route 53 name servers. Add these ranges to the list of allowed IP address ranges if you're using Route 53 as the DNS service for one or more domains and you want to be able to use the dig or nslookup commands to query Route 53 name servers.

Note

We rarely change the IP addresses of name servers; if we need to change IP addresses, we'll notify you in advance.

"service": "ROUTE53_HEALTHCHECKS"

These IP address ranges are used by Route 53 health checkers. Add these ranges to the list of allowed IP address ranges if you're using Route 53 health checks to check the health of resources on your network.

Note

We rarely change the IP addresses of health checkers; if we need to change IP addresses, we'll notify you in advance.

For more information about IP addresses for health checks, see Configuring router and firewall rules for Amazon Route 53 health checks.

"service": "ROUTE53_HEALTHCHECKS_PUBLISHING"

Route 53 uses these IP address ranges only internally. You don't need to add these ranges to the list of allowed ranges.
