Amazon AWS Route 53 DNS Review

Amazon, Google, YouTube and Facebook have scaled their websites and networks better than anyone in the world. Amazon has a hosted DNS product offering which is priced by the number of queries. Amazon’s DNS records are replicated globally and domain name servers reflect a global presence.

The numbers really speak for them selves and these are the cold hard facts. I will describe the three test scenarios which are:

  1. Response query time with records hosted on the hosting provider DNS servers
  2. Response query time with records hosted on the domain registrar’s DNS servers
  3. Response query time with records hosted on the Amazon AWS Route 53 DNS servers

Check out the data your self! Does it really require further explanation? If so, drop a comment.
