To route traffic for your domain name, such as example. You can manage the DNS records of your domain using the registrar where you registered your domain, or you can manage them using Lightsail. We recommend that you transfer management of your domain's DNS records to Lightsail. This allows you to efficiently administer your domain and compute resources together in one place—Lightsail. You can create up to three Lightsail DNS zones. If you require more than three DNS zones, because you manage more than three domain names, we recommend using Amazon Route 53 to manage the DNS of all of your domains. You can use Route 53 to route traffic for your domain to your Lightsail resources. After transferring management of your domain's DNS records to Lightsail, you will continue to manage renewals and billing for your domain at your domain's registrar.

The Domain Name System DNS is a hierarchical and decentralized naming system for computers, services, or other resources connected to the Internet or a private network. It associates various information with domain names assigned to each of the participating entities. Most prominently, it translates more readily memorized domain names to the numerical IP addresses needed for locating and identifying computer services and devices with the underlying network protocols. By providing a worldwide, distributed directory service , the Domain Name System has been an essential component of the functionality of the Internet since The Domain Name System delegates the responsibility of assigning domain names and mapping those names to Internet resources by designating authoritative name servers for each domain. Network administrators may delegate authority over sub-domains of their allocated name space to other name servers. This mechanism provides distributed and fault-tolerant service and was designed to avoid a single large central database. The Domain Name System also specifies the technical functionality of the database service that is at its core. The Internet maintains two principal namespaces , the domain name hierarchy  and the Internet Protocol IP address spaces. Internet name servers and a communication protocol implement the Domain Name System.

A domain name is an identification string that defines a realm of administrative autonomy, authority or control within the Internet. Domain names are used in various networking contexts and for application-specific naming and addressing purposes. In general, a domain name identifies a network domain , or it represents an Internet Protocol IP resource, such as a personal computer used to access the Internet, a server computer hosting a website , or the web site itself or any other service communicated via the Internet. In , Any name registered in the DNS is a domain name. Domain names are organized in subordinate levels subdomains of the DNS root domain, which is nameless. The first-level set of domain names are the top-level domains TLDs , including the generic top-level domains gTLDs , such as the prominent domains com , info , net , edu , and org , and the country code top-level domains ccTLDs. Below these top-level domains in the DNS hierarchy are the second-level and third-level domain names that are typically open for reservation by end-users who wish to connect local area networks to the Internet, create other publicly accessible Internet resources or run web sites. The registration of these domain names is usually administered by domain name registrars who sell their services to the public. A fully qualified domain name FQDN is a domain name that is completely specified with all labels in the hierarchy of the DNS, having no parts omitted.
