Route 53 Hosted Zone
Obtaining a Route 53 hosted zone to program DNS entries
The DuploCloud platform needs a unique route 53-hosted zone to program DNS entries for services that you deploy. The domain must be created out-of-band and set in DuploCloud. The zone is a subdomain such as
Never use this subdomain for anything else, as DuploCloud owns all
CNAMEentries in this domain and removes anything entries it has no record of.
To create the Route53 hosted zone using the AWS Console:
- 2.Navigate to Route 53 and Hosted Zones.
- 3.Create a new hosted zone with the desired domain name, for example,
- 5.Go to your root Domain Provider's site (for
acme.com, for example), and create a
NSrecord that references the domain name of the hosted zone you created (
apps.acme.com) and add the zone name to the name servers that you noted above.
Once this is complete, provision the Route53 domain in every DuploCloud Plan, starting with the default plan. Add the Route53 hosted zone ID and domain name, preceded with a dot (.).
Do not forget the dot (.) at the beginning of the DNS suffix, in the form as shown below.
DNS tab for DEFAULT tenant with External/Internal Suffix Values beginning with a dor (.)
Note that this domain must be set in each new Plan you create in your DuploCloud Infrastructure.
