Amazon Route 53 is a highly available and scalable Domain Name System (DNS) service offered by Amazon Web Services. We provide naming and routing services to enable higher level applications built using AWS services. We are building new capabilities to provide secure and reliable connectivity for users and applications, which will enable our customers to create better solutions for their users.
