  2. This is not a domain transfer video. You have just added your EC2 instance IP in route53 & replaced AWS NS in DNS Control Panel.

    My question is, how to transfer domain name registrar say from Net4 to AWS.

  3. Great Video! Still useful as of October 2020, interface is slightly more polished but everything is still relatively same place.
    Quick question. Whats the downside of having the server "serve up" both versions of the website? www and without www

  4. Hello sir I'm getting some error like I have created records but there are showing only two records NS and SOA please help me out. Thanks in advance

  5. Got my domain from porkbun, followed all instructions, put the servers from AWS into "authoritative nameservers" in porkbun, and… epic fail. Freaking AWS is so complicated, I'm amazed I even made it to this point, because everything so far has been far more complicated than this tutorial, this is the simplest part so far in the whole process, and it doesn't work for me.

  6. I can't connect to my instance at all, its wordpress certificated by bitnami and automatic, it always shows Connection timed out

  7. THIS IS THE ONE THAT WALKS IT THRU STEP BY STEP. HEY, THANK YOU, AND YES, ALL THE OTHERS WILL JUST GIVE U BACKGROUND AND GET U CONFUSED. This one will go step by step and holds your hand to get it right….thank you so much!

  8. Your technique worked well. But there is one issue I am facing. After changing DNS my domain is working fine. but now I have 2 websites running. One on my domain and other on the public ipv4 address. Please guide me how should I map the public IP to my domain name.

  9. Didn't work for me, I can't even access my website. When I go to the domain, it gives me the "register at namecheap" page thing. Is this still applicable today?

    Edit: It worked now, it took almost 1 hour before I was able to access the site. Thanks!

  10. Each time, I restart server, the IP is changing – this is pretty inconvenient! Is it possible to assign a static IP to a EC2 instance similar to what we can do in an Lightsail instance? Also what is Elastic IP?

  11. I'm working from Mac's Terminal, and have some issues on the last step. The Server' Configuration File window is empty. I don't see any commands, where I have to type the three lines of code. Any suggestions, please?

  12. Done thanks
    Creating hosted zone in route 53 with our domain name
    Creating A record (pointing our domain to our IP), CName record (for www)
    Change the name servers for the domain to be amazons name servers through godaddy (don’t include dot at the end)
    5:29 configuring Apache server to serve only www. Version of the website

  13. Thank you for this. I watched this several times as my server didn't want to load. Turns out I had to just be patient for the nameserver to reflect from GoDaddy side.
