Create Advanced Routing Policies in AWS Route 53

In this project, we will learn to use AWS Route 53 for traffic policy management through the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI). We’re going to create advanced traffic policies to enable the request to be routed according to geolocation and geo proximity. We’ll also look at how we can associate multiple rules within a single policy.

Project Description

Amazon’s cloud computing platform, Route 53, is a highly scalable cloud Domain Name System (DNS) web service that provides a reliable and cost-effective method of routing requests to internet applications. By associating domain names with numeric IP addresses, developers and businesses can route requests. Along with the traditional EC2 instances, Route 53 can also route traffic to non-AWS infrastructure. Route 53 servers all over the world monitor the health of endpoints and servers. Over Internet Protocol version 6, or IPv6, Amazon Route 53 enables full end-to-end DNS resolution. On IPv6 networks, recursive DNS resolvers can either use IPv4 or IPv6.

In this project, we’ll use AWS Command Line Interface to manage hosted zones. Using the skills learned in this project, we’ll be able to host our website and create a seamless load balancer at the DNS level. To see the project’s outcomes in action, we must create a domain name and configure it so that the name resolution is forwarded to AWS DNS servers.
