I have a new .com.br domain, and according to this AWS site I can no longer use Route 53 to register new .com.br domains or transfer .com.br domains to Route 53.

Does this effectively mean that I cannot host my website using AWS? If not, how would I do that?


You can still host your web site with AWS, and you can even still host your DNS service on Route 53.

The list you linked to is a list of domains which you can (or cannot) register with Route 53 as a domain registrar.


Route 53 is not required to host a website in AWS nor is it required to have name resolution to a service in AWS

Wherever you currently manage the DNS records for your domain will be fine. Just point them to the IP or host address of the AWS site/service you're connecting to.

    I accepted Michael's answer because he distinguished between register with Route 53 and using Route 53, but I would just like to say that I liked your answer as well because you provide a solution to the problem. Since I cannot upvote anything I had to make this comment in stead. – Akitirija Jan 31 '18 at 19:52
  • Agreed, both are good answers. I use a standard registrar, CloudFlare for caching and DNS, and an EC2 server. – Tim Feb 1 '18 at 0:21
