comment Pointing a domain to AWS Route 53
If I understand correctly you cannot host a domain on Route 53, you can only use their name servers to manage the domain. They do indeed do DNS, but this simply controls domains hosted elsewhere. The NS records in my delegation match the records in Route 53? But still no joy. Am I right in putting "www" into the "Hostname"?

Yeah, the 'Delegation', or 'Custom Nameservers' as my domain host calls them, is the information I showed in the second part my question - Im trying to forward that domain onto the Route 53 nameservers. To my understanding, Route 53 doesnt host the actual domains themselves, you can only configure nameservers. So I use my domain host to hold the domain and then tell it to use Route 53's nameservers. Am I right in thinking this? Should I delete the NS record set on Route 53? Is this what you are suggesting I do?
