Route 53 as your DNS service

    Navigate to your Route 53 service.  
     1. Go the Hosted zones page and Click the “Create Hosted Zone” button. Type in any hosted zone name. For example,
       2. After zone is created you will see a page that includes the four domain name services (aka the delegation set).  Select the Delegation set to place into your domain details for your domain on godaddy (in this case
       3.Go to your domain name registry (in this case godaddy) and launch (godaddy terminology) your domain name to set your Nameservers.  Use the four name services/delegation set retrieved in step 2.
       4.Go to your web site: Two issues: DNS has not been propagated to the servers on the internet and your domain does not point to anything on Route 53. Let’s take care of the second issue.
       5. Go to create record set for the hosted domain  Create the record set and point it to your elastic ip, elastic load balancer, or S3 bucket.  In this case, I will use an elastic IP.  This means I have no automatic HA for my web site.  If my EC2 instances goes down, I my web site goes down.  I should either but my web site on S3 (static web pages only) or use an ELB.  I could even point my web site to a private EC2 instance IP. This would be even less resilient than using an elastic IP.  
      6.  Test the web site again.  It will not come up until all internet routing tables have been propagated.  This can take a couple hours.
