Set AWS Route 53 DNS to Netlify DNS

Assuming your Hugo pages are hosted in Netlify, you may want to set your DNS to Netlify to take advantage of their easy HTTPS setup feature. To do so,

  1. Go to your website’s Domain settings in Netlify and find the nameservers specified by Netlify.
  2. Change the nameservers in AWS Route53 through the console as show in the figure above.
  3. Wait for a day at most for changes to apply. In my recent experience, changes done in Route53 reflect quickly (<4 hours).
