I got a static IP from EC2 and put it to A host part on godaddy to my domain. After that I defined 2 hosts (NS1.domain.com and NS2.domain.com) from godaddy with the same IP address. And put them into the nameserver field at my domain control panel. As you can understand rather than using name serves given by amazon, I want to create my own. It works with regular hosts but it didn't work with EC2. A week have past but the site is not directed. Can someone explain me what am I doing wrong?

Can you please post the output of following commands: 1. netstat -npl | grep 53 2. telnet <hostname> 53 The second command should be run somewhere from outside the Amazon network. –  GeekRide Dec 20 '12 at 11:24
You do what you want...but why not simply use Route53? About the only thing you can't do with it is to have it as a slave DNS. –  Alex Dec 20 '12 at 16:33
