AWS Domain Registration (Route 53)
AWS Service: Route 53
Domain Registration Cost: $12/ year (Privacy Protection included)
Route 53 Hosted Zones
When you register a domain with Route 53, AWS automatically create a hosted zone for the domain and charge a small monthly fee for the hosted zone in addition to the annual charge for the domain registration. This hosted zone is where you store information about how to route traffic for your domain, for example, to an Amazon EC2 instance or a CloudFront distribution. AWS also charge a small fee for the DNS queries that we receive for your domain. For more information, see Amazon Route 53 Pricing.
