AWS Route 53

Amazons DNS Service

Allows you to map domain names to:

  • EC2 instances
  • Load balancers
  • S3 buckets

Lab Notes

  • Register Domain on Route 53 (using namecheap use and match the namespace values)
  • Create an A record set for the route 53 value. Use alias - clicking on Alias Target will provide dropdown where any pre-defined ELB/ALBs will appear
  • You can setup a Load Balancer while in the EC2 dashboard - along left hand side you will see ‘Load Balancing’
  • Once setup you can go to the domain and should be directed to your server
