Have you come across this situation on pointing your domain at GoDaddy or some other domain provider to the AWS EC2 server?
There are some easy steps to follow:
Domain is from GoDaddy
Server is at AWS – EC2 server on Ubuntu
How to link the domain to AWS ec2 server:
- Open amazon AWS management console and
- Go to R-53
- Create a hosted zone with the domain name
That will automatically give NS record and SOA record
Create two more records:
Record A with only domain.com – Update the Elastic IP [ Don’t use Alias]
Record A with www.domain.com – Update the Elastic IP [ Don’t use Alias]
Take the NS records from AWS and update them on the GoDaddy NS record.
In general, it takes up to 48 hours for the DNS to propagate. But, make sure if the domain provider is managing your email. Then you don’t need to create A record on AWS.
You need to create A record on the GoDaddy with elastic IP of the EC2 server.
