Creating a Private Hosted Zone and Associating It with Multiple VPCs

If DNS names only need to be resolved internally, a Route 53 private hosted zone is created. In this hands-on lab, we will create a private hosted zone. To get started, we will create a peer relationship between the VPCS. We will then use Route 53 to create a private hosted zone and associate the peered VPC with the hosted zone. Finally, we validate connectivity between the VPC peers by pinging the host by the fully qualified hostname we create in Route 53.
