Having hundreds of clients means dealing with lots of domain names, usually managed by different registrars and owned by different persons. Today, I’m going to tell you about a success story of one of our customers who benefited from transferring their DNS service to AWS Route 53. The first tip, one that can seem quite obvious, is that every domain name managed by a shared hosting company – let’s call it “AwesomeHoster” – should use a pair of its white labeled nameservers ns1.awesome-hoster.com and ns2.awesome-hoster.com. It gives the benefit of not having to remember the exact IP addresses of the NS servers, and also being convenient in case of nameserver migration, as with such setup routing changes do not affect clients. Should you decide to make the move to the cloud with the AWS Route53 service, we recommend that you use the Plesk extension for automated provisioning of DNS zones to Amazon. First, you need to install it. Log in to Plesk, select ‘Extensions’ from the main menu on the left, and click ‘Extensions Catalog’. Follow the on-screen instructions to get the key/secret pair from the Amazon portal and enable the provisioning service. Every time a domain is created in Plesk, its DNS zone immediately appears in the Amazon Console: As you can see in the “Hosted Zone Details” section on the right, the nameservers have names liSkip - to - content - Contact - us: - +34 - 944 - 58 - 06 - 58 - Plesk - Partner - Program - Plesk - Lifecycle - Policy - Blog - Contact - us - Plesk - 360 - Menu - Contact - us: - +34 - 944 - 58 - 06 - 58 - Plesk - Partner - Program - Plesk - Lifecycle - Policy - Blog - Contact - us - Plesk - 360 - Solutions - By - Role - Developers - Content - Managers - Digital - Agencies - IT - Admins - Web - Hosters - Hyperscalers - Menu - Developers - Content - Managers - Digital - Agencies - IT - Admins - Web - Hosters - Hyperscalers - By - Edition - Web - Admin - Edition - Web - Pro - Edition - Web - Host - Edition - Business - & - Collaboration - Plesk - WordPress - Edition - Menu - Web - Admin - Edition - Web - Pro - Edition - Web - Host - Edition - Business - & - Collaboration - Plesk - WordPress - Edition - By - Cloud - Amazon - Web - Services - Microsoft - Azure - Alibaba - Cloud - GCP - Marketplace - Vultr - DigitalOcean - Linode - Menu - Amazon - Web - Services - Microsoft - Azure - Alibaba - Cloud - GCP - Marketplace - Vultr - DigitalOcean - Linode - Partner - Program - Exclusive - discounts - - benefits - and - exposure - to - take - your - business - to - the - next - level - Become - a - partner - Product - Explore - Features - Everyone - Admins - & - Web - Hosters - Developers - Designers - & - Agencies - Plesk - Features - Menu - Everyone - Admins - & - Web - Hosters - Developers - Designers - & - Agencies - Plesk - Features - Key - Topics - WordPress - Toolkit - SEO - Toolkit - Plesk - eCommerce - Toolkit - Joomla!
