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.

DNS routes traffic based on multiple criteria, including endpoint health and geographic region. You can configure traffic routing to resolve specific end user requests. DNS leverages Huawei's global infrastructure to handle millions of concurrent queries on a single node, allowing your end users to quickly access the closest application endpoints that are healthy. DNS immediately handles queries once you create a zone and add record sets to it. You can import up to record sets on the DNS console. The record sets you add are effective within a minute. You can create public and private zones for the same domain name and deploy your applications online and offline.

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.
