Starting today, you can enable DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) on Amazon Route 53 Resolver endpoints in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) region, operated by Sinnet, and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) region, operated by NWCD. With this launch, you can encrypt DNS queries that pass through the endpoints and improve privacy by minimizing the visibility of the information exchanged through the queries. DoH is a protocol that protects DNS traffic by passing the queries through an encrypted HTTPS session. DoH can help enhance privacy and security by protecting DNS queries from eavesdropping and manipulation from unauthorized users.

Route 53 Resolver endpoints makes hybrid cloud configurations easier to manage by enabling seamless DNS query resolution across your entire hybrid cloud. With DoH support on Resolver endpoints, you can now ensure DNS traffic across your hybrid cloud is encrypted via DoH for additional protection. You can opt-in to use DoH on the endpoints (both inbound and outbound) and create rules to forward DoH traffic to destinations of your choice.

You can get started by using the Amazon Web Services Management Console or Amazon Route 53 API. For more information, visit the Route 53 product detail page and feature documentation. For details on pricing, visit the pricing page.
