Creating a Subdomain That Uses Amazon Route 53 as the DNS Service without Migrating the Parent Domain ¶
You can create a subdomain that uses Amazon Route 53 as the DNS service without migrating the parent domain from another DNS service.
The procedure shall involve following steps:
- Create subdomain hosted zone
- Create NS record on the parent domain hosted zone
In this example, we use
example.com as parent hosted zone.
Create Subdomain ¶
You want to keep those parent domain hosted zone records, so now lets create the subdomain.
route 53 create the subdomain :
Create Hosted zone
Fill up the box
Domain Name: with your subdomain : k8s.example.com
Route 53 should generate your NS server like below in subdomain management console:
ns-613.<example-aws-dns>-13.net. ns-75.<example-aws-dns>-04.com. ns-1022.<example-aws-dns>-35.co.uk. ns-1149.<example-aws-dns>-27.org.
Take note on these records.
Create NS record on Parent domain hosted zone ¶
Add / Create a NS record on the parent domain hosted zone with previous noted subdomain NS server records via parent domain management console.
After done, the result should like this from cli:
dig ns k8s.example.com
;; ANSWER SECTION: k8s.example.com. 172800 IN NS ns-613.<example-aws-dns>-13.net. k8s.example.com. 172800 IN NS ns-75.<example-aws-dns>-04.org. k8s.example.com. 172800 IN NS ns-1022.<example-aws-dns>-35.com. k8s.example.com. 172800 IN NS ns-1149.<example-aws-dns>-27.co.uk.
Wait until the NS replication is ok
