I want to map a naked domain (i.e., example.com instead of www.example.com) to my EC2 server. I also have gmail setup on my example.com domain.
A few weeks ago I attempted to map this together using CNAME to map to my EC2 URL. My email stopped working and it took some time to get back online; thus, I want to be extra careful to ensure I don't have an error if I try this again.
I have a static IP mapping to my EC2 server now. Thus, it is my understanding that the following host records will work:
-A record to @ host name (example.com) which points to my static IP address on AWS. -Maintain my gmail MX record settings.
Can anyone confirm that this is the right way to set my domain settings and that email will continue to be correctly routed?
