There have been great strides in improving the UI for Route 53, but there's still a bit that can be improved on. It's not very beginner friendly, and some of the workflows can be refined just a bit further to make them excellent. Just changing a couple drop downs could make it so much better.

Only rates a "9" because they changed the interface recently and I'm getting used to it. Before this change, for me it was easier to access--really easy. But you'll notice that it is easy to manage current domains, create a new DNS zone, buy a new domain, change everything inside Route 53, and really fast.

Like most AWS services the usability of the product is pretty good. The AWS console provides a single interface from where all the configurations can be done in a jiffy. Having said that for new users who are coming from traditional hosting services might feel a bit out of place.

You need to know what DNS is; this is a tool built for developers who already know the technology and are just looking for a DNS management tool. The tool is very usable given that. If you're not familiar with DNS, Route53 isn't really for you and you won't find it to be very usable-- you'll need to go read the documentation, and that will start with learning what DNS is.
