I little while back I was transferring a domain from GoDaddy to Route 53. I didn’t turn off the private registration, nor did GoDaddy flag this or prevent me from going through the transfer process.
So about a day later the transfer process failed. I figured out what the issue was and initiated the process again in AWS.
When I checked my billing, I found out that I had been charged the price of a domain both times.
I looked onto, but couldn’t find anything about this, so I contacted customer support.
AWS customer support resolved the issue for me.
I thought I would give a heads up in case anyone else encountered this issue.
I’ve been making websites since 2010, and I’ve used AWS cloud services to host several websites. However I never looking into what route 53 was until recently.
I decided to check it out about a week back, and ended up purchasing this domain name.
I feel that many people are hosting sites with AWS and yet managing their domain names with other companies. Which is fine, but personally I find it saves time to manage everything in one location, and AWS offers decent pricing with free domain privacy searches (I was paying for that with some domains I have on Godaddy).
I feel that Amazon is offering a good server at a good price and I want to tell others about it. So let me walk you the reader through the steps to purchase a domain with Amazon.
- Sign into your AWS account. If you don’t have an account learn how to set one up on my article on how to set up an AWS account.
- Click the Services button. Select the A-Z tab and then to down to the Rs and select Route 53.
- Now you will be in the Route 53 dash board. From there click on the Register Domains tab on the left hand site.
