Amazon Route 53

With Amazon Route 53, one can create and manage public DNS records. Using the easy to use and simple web interface it lets you get started in minutes. One can provide controlled access to the hosted zone by using the AWS IAM service. IAM can be used to control who in the team can create and make changes to your DNS records.

I truly like the dependability and low-dormancy admittance to the framework. In more straightforward words, admittance to our Google worker or foundation is worldwide and we have 100% accessibility to the Authoritative Name Servers. We likewise have full authority over your DNS settings and these are no longer at the control of any outsider enlisting our areas. This further upgrades our IT framework security. Valuing is incredible besides.
Google Cloud DNS incorporates with different devices, for example, terraform very well in this way empowering simple expansion and evacuation of DNS records. It additionally coordinates well with other Google Cloud stage items.
Documentation and simplicity of use is first class for Google Cloud DNS.

Amazon Route 53 is designed well, with individual domains easily configurable, and with the current state available at a glance. The UI does have scaling issues, but they are at scales most companies will not encounter. The tooling surrounding Route 53 in AWS is very good and makes use of Route 53 for many features.

This is very easy to use if you are already using Google Cloud Services or you are part of the Google Ecosystem already. I believe this is probably the main intention of Google Cloud DNS, to provide a more complete suite of tools to Google Cloud customers. For that reason I would rate usability a 10.

The product is simple enough that the docs and the UI stand on their own. Its one of the least confusing (/most intuitive) AWS products. As with all Amazon products, don't expect strong email or human support-- you're going to be using their documentation. If you need a human to guide you through the DNS process, you should consider a tool like CloudFlare or NameCheap; if you're a developer, Route53 is where you want to be.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Route 53

GoDaddy is fine if you just want to have a domain and set up a few simple records. But if part of your business is transferring domains and constantly updating records for new websites, email changes, and security, then a registrar-based DNS service just won't cut it. Route 53 has the tools for an advanced user who wants more control to avoid pitfalls of transfer downtime.

Google Cloud DNS

Google Cloud DNS is just as good as some other premium DNS services and definitely better than some (such as GoDaddy). I generally choose Google Cloud DNS when I am already using other Google Cloud tools for a project as it just makes sense. From one account I can manage the server, storage cluster, DNS, etc.
