AWS - Domain

How/where I can register for a domain name in order to use with AWS EC2? Can I register a domain name with AWS directly? If not which domain/host company can I use that will allow me to import the domain to AWS EC2?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can buy a domain from any valid registrar. Amazon does not have any advantage over others.
Godaddy, Namecheap,,, and a multitude of registrars catering to all country level and top level domains.

Godaddy have a solid and competitive offer, that's where I buy domains when I need them.

Most registrars also offer a basic, free DNS service.

Having said that - what do you mean when you say that you want to import the domain into AWS EC2?

Stuart, thank you for the link!

shalomc, I'm sorry I should have expanded more. I/we're creating a 90 server dev/test environment and we need to purchase/register a domain name in order to add to all the servers (I.E. so that each server has a FQDN). Thank you for your comment, hope this helps clear what exactly I am trying to do!
