.NET Framework 4.5
Container for the parameters to the CreateHostedZone operation. This action creates a new hosted zone.

To create a new hosted zone, send a POST request to the

            53 API version/hostedzone
resource. The request body must include a document with a CreateHostedZoneRequest element. The response returns the CreateHostedZoneResponse element 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 INSYNC 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 NameServers elements returned in DelegationSet.
