This will same you from having to pay the $.01 per hour for an elastic IP.
You do not need hosting from GoDaddy. I have GoDaddy and I host with EC2. It is very simple to set up a website on EC2 and link it to a GoDaddy domain. Here is what you do:
At this point your website should be up and running but you probably have a long amazon url ( i.e. ec2-175-41-219-186.ap-northeast-1.compute.amazonaws.com ). The next steps will explain how to associate your GoDaddy domain with the instance.
Now you will have an elastic IP which is a number that looks like 188.8.131.52. Save that number because we will use it later.
6. Complete. After a few minutes your domain should now start resolving to the web server you have on EC2.
