I want to use Route 53 to experiment with DNS Round Robin load balancing of several EC2 instances. Can I do this without having/using a custom domain name?

  • If you have an existing domain of any sort, point a subdomain of it at Route53 (via delegation using NS records for the subdomain) for experimentation.
