My boss host a domain e.g.
example.comin GoDaddy. (I do not have access to GoDaddy this case)
In AWS, I want to setup a load-balancer (ELB) and point to 2 EC2 servers.
Unfortunately, I can’t setup “@” A record to ELB due to DNS features.
I want to utilize Route53 to do it but my boss don’t want to transfer the domain to Amazon. Is it possible?
My question is, whether I need to transfer
example.comfrom GoDaddy to Amazon. (Of course, if I need to make some changes in GoDaddy side, it make sense to my boss). Is it ok? Thanks.
GoDaddy can still be a domain registrar while you’ll have to update it with 4 name servers assigned to your Route 53 Hosted Zone (visible as NS record in a Hosted Zone): https://www.godaddy.com/help/set-custom-nameservers-for-domains-registered-with-us-12317. In Route 53 Hosted Zone you can create an alias record to an ELB instance.
