Transferring Domain Registrations from GoDaddy to Amazon Route 53

Amazon Route 53 offers domain registration services and if you would like to keep your domains together like I do, you can transfer your current domain names easily.

In the past, I bough some domains from GoDaddy and generally use Amazon Route 53 as my DNS service.

The same principles here would apply to other types of application logs as well. Read more at Storing and Monitoring Rails Logs on Amazon CloudWatch post.
