Amazon Route 53 vs DNSimple: What are the differences?
Developers describe Amazon Route 53 as "A highly available and scalable Domain Name System (DNS) web service". Amazon Route 53 is designed to give developers and businesses an extremely reliable and cost effective way to route end users to Internet applications by translating human readable names like www.example.com into the numeric IP addresses like 192.0.2.1 that computers use to connect to each other. Route 53 effectively connects user requests to infrastructure running in Amazon Web Services (AWS) – such as an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance, an Amazon Elastic Load Balancer, or an Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket – and can also be used to route users to infrastructure outside of AWS. On the other hand, DNSimple is detailed as "We make DNS simple". DNSimple provides the tools you need to manage your domains. We offer both a carefully crafted web interface for managing your domains and DNS records, as well as an HTTP API with various code libraries and tools Buy, connect, operate!.

I like that they know how to handle Heroku app domains. The one-click to add feature is nice, super simple and easy to use. My only complaint is that I have to use a different provider for our actual domain registration. Would be nice to just have DNSimple handle all of that.
Since most of zerotoherojs.com infrastructure is on AWS, Route53 is the obvious DNS of choice.
I’m also considering CloudFlare, but haven’t decided the pros and cons of migrating yet.
We utilize it as main DNS for fron-tend servers, Dynamic DNS for internal VPCS and simple signal flag storage for autoscaled instances
