Why are NS records not updating for the domain I recently transferred?

0

I mistakenly transferred a domain away from one registrar to AWS Route53 without pointing the domain NS records to AWS nameservers beforehand. Is there a remedy for this? DNS is still using the NS records from the previous registrar.

Hello Ben,

You transfered a domain to route 53 right? It's actually simple.

Navigate into your Route 53 Service and into the Route 53 registered domains tab.

https://us-east-1.console.aws.amazon.com/route53/domains/home?region=eu-west-1#/

Your registered domain should be there.

Click on it.

Now you can update the nameservers to point to the Nameservers you want it to point to, f.e. the nameservers responsible for your route 53 public hosted zone or point to the nameservers of your old dns provider. Whatever you prefer. Route53 is prefered if you work with aws services because of the linked integrations of the different aws-services.

Let's say you want to create a route 53 public hosted zone and use this for future if one didn't get created automatically from aws.

So just create a route53 public hosted zone, "migrate" your existing dns entries if required or add new ones.

Afterwards update the nameservers in your "registered domain".

  • Thank you for this, I can't believe I missed that panel in the console which allows you to change the nameservers... I don't know why I assumed that the nameservers for my hosted zone would be used automatically. I will try this.
