I am currently using
Amazon AWS to launch a blogging service which offers two different ways to display content to the users
- Using their own subdomain :
- Using their own domain :
(1) I am able to use
CNAMES which is fine. For version
(2) I run into an issue where If I would have a customer point their mywebsite.com A Record to my Public IP 24.x.x.x I run into an issue where Amazon by default does not allow Public IPs to be pointed to loadbalancers.
Has anyone found a work around for this? It's crucial that we have individuals changing their
A records to the specific IP of the software.
I have considered Apache style load balancing software etc, It just concerns me as it puts a single point of failure for this application.
