Creating a Private Hosted Zone and Associating It with Multiple VPCs

About this Hands-on Lab

If DNS names only need to be resolved internally, a Route 53 private hosted zone is created. In this hands-on lab, we will create a private hosted zone. To get started, we will create a peer relationship between the VPCS. We will then use Route 53 to create a private hosted zone and associate the peered VPC with the hosted zone. Finally, we validate connectivity between the VPC peers by pinging the host by the fully qualified hostname we create in Route 53.

Learning Objectives

Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:

Create an EC2 Instance, a Private Hosted Zone, and an A Record on Route 53
  1. Navigate to EC2 and create an instance named Client.
  2. Navigate to Route 53 and create a private hosted zone and an A record.
  3. Associate the private hosted zone with the VPCs provisioned with the lab.
Create a VPC Peering Relationship and Configure Routing
  1. Create a VPC peering relationship and set up routing between the VPC peers.
  2. Verify connectivity by connecting to one of the instances via SSH, and then verify that you’re able to ping by hostname.
