Prior to 3.8 one could use up to create hosted zone / use domains without having the dns of the effective tld plus one mapped to the account. In short prior to 3.8 up supported subdomains as the base domain.

But since ce1ebf5 up always creates a hosted zone for the effective tld plus one. This adds a requirement on DNS that isn't always fulfillable - pointing the base domains DNS to the account.

Steps to Reproduce

With a config like this:

	"name": "vwa-osc-scc",
	"lambda": {
		"memory": 256
	"hooks": {
		"build": "",
		"clean": ""
	"stages": {
		"development": {
			"domain": ""
		"production": {
			"domain": ""
		"staging": {
			"domain": ""

you would get a hosted zone for Prior to 3.8 you would have got a hosted zone for

The old behaviour was more of a bug, at least as a default. Open to having some kind of setting for it, even just "zone": "" alongside the domain maybe
