This post demonstrates how to point your domain to an AWS Load Balancer resource using two (2) A Records, and we will use my domain name origdoc.com.
Before creating a Hosted Zone, register a domain name, e.g., example.com. It must be your domain purchase from AWS or other domain name registrar like Namecheap.
If you have a Namecheap domain and want to create a Hosted Zone for, please look at Point your Namecheap domain to EC2 instance via Route53.
Create Hosted Zone
Initial Records – NS and SOA
A newly created Hosted Zone has only NS and SOA records.
Point www.origdoc.com and origdoc.com to Load Balancer
There are two (2) ways to do this.
Create an A Record with alias and point www.origdoc.com to the load balancer. Then, create another A Record with an alias for origdoc.com and point it to the first A Record created.
Create A Records (with alias) for www.origdoc.com and origdoc.com
