In this lesson we show how to register a domain using the Route 53 AWS services. We also introduce their advanced traffic management and their availability monitoring, different people call it health check services. And we also discuss the related Route 53 pricing for their three different kind of query; Standard query, The standard DNS query; Latency Based Routing query and Geo DNS query. Amazon Route 53 provides highly available and scalable DNS Systems. So they are not easy to crash and go down. They pick up servers at different locations of their region. We provide the DNS registrations and this is very convenient, all in one easy access so that you don't have to go to a network solution, go to GoDaddy, and then go to your web hosting company. In the same website and so with the same management console you can access registered domain and create the DNS entry within 11-12 minutes. And It also provides health checking web services so that if some site goes down they can reroute you to other servers through the load balancing or through route DNS advanced services. And It provides, just like the traditional DNS, it provides a translation of DNS name to the IP address. It combine all your DNS with these health checking services to route traffic to a healthy endpoint, they're called endpoints. And it allows us to work with AWS elastic load balancing clusters and EC2 instances individually or S3 buckets. And the most amazing thing right now is they can even route the request to infrastructure outside of AWS. So they already started to think about Multi-cloud, Multi-provider, Multi-cloud provider kind of future. And that's a trend. Look into AWS management console and select Route 53 in the section called networking content delivery service. Or you can type in Route 53 in the query box where you are going to see the dashboard show up with the major functions Route 53 provides okay, from the left. The traditional DNS management and that functions allow you to create and managing your DNS entry. The second one is the advanced traffic management service. It provides a visual tool allow you to easily create policy for multi-endpoint in complex configurations. Day of time and busy load, those kinds of configurations. Availability monitoring here it provides with health checks to your server so they are monitoring your applications whether they are up or not. Then also other web services and direct the DNS query to healthy resources. The last one is the domain registrations and to register domain, we click on that and the entry in the middle of the dropbox you can see there is domain name entry and then there is a button to the right that says check. So these allow you to check first whether your proposed domain name is already being used or they are free. Alright. And in the pull down menu entry is telling you what are the top level domain names like.net,.co,.uk or.co.de. Those are Britain or Germany and look like they are even cheaper, they are. You need to only pay $9 per year compared to.com in general that is $12 and.net is $11. So once you fill in your domain name and top level domain you click check. Very quickly it is going to show you whether that's available and they also give you quite a few alternate names and not necessarily in the same.com maybe in others,.info and.net kind of domain and allows you to pick and choose. So the price here is actually by years, every year you need to pay for that registration fee. Domain name search result. Here it shows that myracewin.com is actually available at $12 per year. So we can click, "Add to the cart." sometimes people even choose the equivalent.net if they are available. Know that there is a DNS zone hosting charge at 50 cents per zone per month okay, and because all these DNS query take some resource from AWS, they will have to charge you and for the first 25 zones, each zone is not just all together. Each zone is 50 cents per month and that's beyond the registration fee $12 a year because that's handled by somebody back at network solutions. The total together is $18 per year, okay. Other Route 53 pricings. These pricings are related to the kind of computing resources AWS needed to serve you. The Traffic Flow, because they routing the traffic based on the condition, daytime kind of information require some processing power and contact information, maybe retrieving database information. Therefore they charge $50 per policy per month. So it's not cheap. Use wisely. And for DNS Query they also charge you but not as much. Let's look at the Query. It's per million query. They will charge you 40 cents, okay. But when you're over one billion, seems that you are very busy web site, you have the DNS Query, over the month exceeding one billion. That's kind of unusual. They will charge you less. They will always charge you or give you a discount 20 percent, or 50 percent, 20 cents. For the Latency Based kind of routing. In this kind of Latency Routing, the user can specify multiple sites and with the same domain name and maybe you set up one site in Singapore, one site in north Virginia, and depend on the user's location based on the table look up they find out the user is closer to Virginia, therefore they route them to Virginia, okay. Based on these kind of additional computations they charge you 60 cents per million query or if you're over the one billion they charge 30 cents. The third one is the Geo DNS query. This is kind of amazing, they are already pushing this out. So basically they allow the user of the site to describe what are the city and state and country they are going to route if traffic comes through they are going to be routed to a specific region they are centered, okay while serving the request and they charge you 70 cents per million query, okay. And if you go beyond one billion they charge you 35 cents per million. So it's not much. So if you compare all these costs like hosting kind of costs maybe it is wise to enjoy that services. AWS provides free health checkups for up to 50 AWS endpoints, okay. So for those 50 services they give you a free health checkup. If they detect something go wrong they can reroute it to a different cluster, different watching machine or different endpoint. Over that, 50 cents per health check per month they will charge you, okay and this is for AWS one, if it is outside of the AWS endpoint like Azure or Google, they will charge you 25 cents more. This is per health check and per month, okay. They also provide you with additional HTTPS, String Matching, Fast interval, and Latency measurement kind of health checkups. They will be more expensive because computing and they charge $1 per health check per month and $2 for non-AWS endpoints. After register domain name, we should watch the email that may come from the system administrator or maybe come from the registrar who handles the actual domain. So the registrar is not AWS, okay. If they didn't respond your email they may suspend your domain. It indicates in this dialogue box it may take three days to complete these DNS domain name registration but I was waiting yesterday and it only takes 11 minutes. And I set up a myugcs.com Domain. It only takes 15 minutes, a couple of weeks ago. So they have become very very fast. Used to be a couple of days. So although it take about 11 minutes for you to fill out the information and altogether it takes 20 minutes from you start filling out the form to actually get the domain accepted and If you enter the domain entry someone can actually reach into your server with that exact domain name. Click, "Go to domain" and it will show the entry with pending information there once you submitted the query and once they got a confirm they were changing that to being accepted, yeah. And there will be a time to show you how long it take. And here we show that at afternoon 4:36, we complete the reservations. At 4:45, we will notify reservation is successful. So it actually takes the 11 minutes. Click on the domain name entry it shows there are four name server of AWS domain names systems that actually registered to serve our DNS query.
