How to integrate or manage the DNS with Plesk and Amazon Route 53 Extension?
Warning: Adding or editing zones manually on an external DNS server integrated with Plesk, such as Amazon Route 53, is not recommended because the manual changes are not visible in Plesk and those can be overwritten or deleted by Plesk.
Note: When using the Amazon Route 53 extension, the DNS zones are managed by Plesk unless the DNS server component from the Plesk server is uninstalled
Select one of the following options:
Click on a section to expand
Integrate the Plesk server with Amazon Route 53
Go to Extensions > Extensions Catalog > Search Amazon Route 53 extension > Click Install
Go to Extensions > My Extensions > Amazon Route 53 > Specify the Amazon security credentials and enable the service
Use Amazon Route 53 exclusively w/o Plesk's DNS server
Go to Extensions > My Extensions > Make sure that the Amazon Route 53 extension is not installed, if it's installed, then Remove it
Uninstall the Plesk's DNS Server going to Tools & Settings > Updates & Upgrades
Connect to the Plesk server via SSH
Turn off the integration with third-party DNS by running the command:
# plesk bin server_dns -—disable-custom-backend
