Why in the world will AWS Route 53 not tell Cloudflare and the rest of the planet about the updated Name Servers in my record as shown here? So frustrating. It has been this way for day after day. Thanks in advance for any tips:
“NS” for a root domain need to be set at the Registrar’s WHOIS settings for that domain. Actual NS records are for subdomains. So if Amazon is SOA example.com, but you want to delegate sub.example.com to another name server, that’s what you’d use NS records for.
OMG - of course, I need to slow down here to speed up. Thanks.
so I registered on Route53 and I have NX set by AWS for ‘thedownwinder.com’ with 4 strings,
However, Cloudfare says ‘replace’, and I have nothing to replace, as I said, www.xxx has no NS, I have to create it.
So how you need to do this in AWS Route 53 is clear as mud. I was able to find it - here is the current path:
Enter the Route 53 service in the management console - you should start at the Dashboard. In the nav on the left - choose Registered domains.
Select the Cloudflare-related domain. Under the information about your domain, you will see the Name Servers category with a link that allows you to “Add or edit name servers”.
Bueno! I wonder how you found your way…
