Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Ben Piper, and welcome to my course AWS Networking Deep Dive: Route 53 DNS. I'm an AWS certified solutions architect and author. DNS, the domain name system, is the glue that holds the internet together. Amazon's Route 53 DNS service not only integrates seamlessly with other AWS offerings, but it also provides many powerful features that go above and beyond what you'll find with most DNS providers. In this course, you'll learn how to use Route 53 with any domain name, even if it's already registered with a different provider. You'll learn how to control traffic to your resources using DNS based routing policies that consider things such as resource health, network latency, geographic location, and more. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include, but certainly are not limited to, using an existing domain name with Route 53, registering a new domain name, health checks and failover routing policies, DNS-based load-balancing and geolocation, and private hosted zones for use with Amazon VPCs. By the end of this course, you'll known how to configure Route 53 for any situation and how to use it with any domain name. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with creating VPCs and managing AWS instances. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn DNS with the AWS Networking Deep Dive: Route 53 DNS course, only at Pluralsight.
