From Learn Amazon Web Services in a Month of Lunches by David Clinton
Until something breaks, you normally won’t spend a lot of time thinking about DNS servers – unless, of course, you want your customers to be able to access your website by its plain text name. For that to happen, you’ll have to reserve the name you’d like with a domain name registrar. The job of a registrar is to update the indexes used by the big DNS servers, so that translation requests from anyone on the Internet can be quickly satisfied. Once you’re over that critical hurdle, you can go back to ignoring DNS once again.
