What do i need to do to use another hosting?

I have a domain DeskFlex.com from GoDaddy, If I want to plan to use Amazon EC2 to run the site, do I require hosting from GoDaddy? Thanks

Hi deskflex,

 

You won't need to purchase hosting from GoDaddy to make this work. There are two options for connecting a GoDaddy domain to an external host:

  1. Keep DNS at GoDaddy & add individual records to point to the host.
  2. Change Nameservers at GoDaddy to point to the host & manage DNS there instead.

I'm not sure which method is best with Amazon EC2, but there was a similar discussion on this thread: https://www.godaddy.com/community/Managing-Domains/Pointing-Domain-To-AWS-EC2-Instance/td-p/155670

 

I think these instructions from Amazon are probably the best place to get started: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/Route53/latest/DeveloperGuide/routing-to-ec2-instance.html
