domain name system – GoDaddy DNS vs Route 53 DNS


I want to connect my GoDaddy’s domain to Cloudfront CDN.
I have 2 options to do that:

  1. Use GoDaddy’s DNS and add a CNAME record that points to the Cloudfront distribution xxx.cloudfront.net. I tried to implement this option and it works well.
  2. Use Route 53 DNS to get the page from Cloudfront. This option is written in the Getting started guide

I checked dnsperf.com and GoDaddy’s DNS has better performance than Route 53.

What are the advantages of using Route 53 DNS, without moving the domain?

What option is more fast and what is the expected time difference?

What option has 1 DNS call and what option has 2 DNS calls?

There is an Old answer, but it is not very clear to me.
