Connecting an EC2 instance with a GoDaddy Domain

Connecting an EC2 instance with a GoDaddy Domain

There are two simple steps to point a GoDaddy domain to an EC2 instance — create an elastic IP for that EC2 instance you are integrating, and connect the elastic IP to your domain.

Create an elastic IP for the EC2 instance you are integrating.

  1. Click Allocate a new address on the Elastic IPs page.
  2. Then, click Allocate on the next page.
  3. Right-click the row of the newly created elastic IP, and click Associate address.
  4. Choose the EC2 instance you are integrating.
  5. Connect the elastic IP to your domain.

Go to GoDaddy’s Domain Manager.

  1. Go to the Manage DNS of the domain you are integrating.
  2. Replace the Value of record with Type A with the elastic IP you just created.
  3. Wait for changes to reflect (This takes at least 600 seconds to reflect, depending on the TTL you specified).
  4. To check if successful, the domain should now load the EC2 instance you pointed it too.
