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.

Oracle Dyn Managed DNS

Oracle managed DNS becomes very heavy when there is an ample amount of DNS being managed. However, the DNS creation and updating takes very less time to propagate and is very easy to use. So, for an organization, where there is a modest amount of DNS to manage, it works very well and gives a splendid experience. So, considering the complexity of managing the DNS for an IT company Oracle Dyn managed DNS is the best option to opt.

Pros

Amazon Route 53

Cons

Amazon Route 53

  • Price, it is not expensive ... but you can find some cheaper and even free DNS solutions.
  • If you use non-AWS infrastructure, Route 53 doesn't have significant advantages on other services.
  • AWS Route 53 does not support forwarding or conditional forwarding options for domains used on an on-premise network.

Oracle Dyn Managed DNS

  • Simpler billing interface
  • More responsive sales team to provide relevant QBRs to ensure proper and best practice use of the product/platform
  • Integration of the Dyn ECT Managed DNS with Dyn Domain Registration would be a nice feature as currently I have to manage two consoles and billing accounts.

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 the only real gripe we have with Dyn; their web-UI can be remarkably painful to use.In the "simple" editor, DNS records are arranged in a kind of "node" view, where each record is a node and any records of the same name or longer (i.e. all records called "record.example.com" or "other.record.example.com") fall under it. This creates an odd sort of hierarchical view that's not really representative of the zone file.The "expert" editor doesn't have an actual delete button, just a checkbox. If you want to update conflicting record types (for example, replacing an A record with a CNAME) you have to check the box for the record being deleted, save changes, create the new record, save changes, and finally publish changes.Dyn uses a publish model for changes, where all changes you make are staged and can be reverted or published all at once. This is fine, except that the publish/revert dialog is in a different page. This is nice when you have many changes, but very annoying when you're changing just one or two records across multiple zones.These are relatively minor issues in an otherwise good platform; annoyances more than deal breakers.

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.

The support team at Dyn has always been very helpful and have tried to answer our questions to the best of their knowledge. We have never had any issues from support tickets and they are often resolved in a few hours

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.

Oracle Dyn Managed DNS

We use both Oracle Dyn Managed DNS and Amazon Route 53. We like having our main DNS provider outside our cloud provider in case there's an issue with Amazon and we need to point things somewhere else temporarily. But for all the smaller stuff and internal stuff, we use Route 53 successfully.

Return on Investment

Amazon Route 53

  • Kept our domains running, no issues with downtime or affecting our end customers.
  • Enabled us to save time running static websites via routing a domain to an S3 Bucket.
  • With various time to live settings, we're able to make DNS changes and have them go live pretty quickly.

Oracle Dyn Managed DNS

  • For the law firm its being used for, it keeps their remote users working. For law firms, time is money, usually every 15 minutes lost can be a big deal to them.
  • Sometimes it has switched when its not supposed to, and causes downtime. No real way to inform users when the switch is happening, it would be great to have an email alert we can not only send to ourselves but a notification to primary and technical partners in the firm so they don't have to yell at us like something is broken, instead they are aware it had to change.
