DNS in a Amazon AWS VPC

DNS in a VPC

By default, Domain Name System (DNS) is handled by the VPC. 

Each instance is assigned a DNS name with its address, which is automatically managed.

It’s possible to use Amazon Route 53 to create your own DNS service inside a VPC with private hosted zones.

You can alternatively use external DNS or host DNS in an EC2 instance.
