Instances you launch within your VPC utilize private (not public) IP addresses. By default, all instances launched within your VPC receive an unresolvable hostname assigned by AWS. You can however specify your own Domain name (e.g. exampledomain.com) and use up to four of your own domain name servers. In order to do so, you must create DHCP options. DHCP options are treated as a "set" of information. See Amazon for current pricing information.
