I have this project / research where I need to test/work on an EC2 instance with multiple domains (100+) in it.
Basically I added an entry (for every domain) in
All these domains will have very little traffic, so one instance will be more than enough.
According to route 53 pricing, I'll have to pay like 0.5 $ per domain per month. That translate into 50+ $ / m just for the route 53 for a test project !(test will take months - maybe even keep it indefinitely if things goes well)
I'd like to avoid that charge. I've done a lot of research, it seems the only way to avoid this is by installing BIND9 on my EC2 instance so that my EC2 more or less act like an independent DNS provider
My question is:
Is BIND the way to go in this case?
If so, how to install BIND on an EC2 instance? I googled a lot, the closest I could find is this and this, but the first tutorial is for ubuntu and the second one is not for EC2, many paths are simply not correct in EC2 / Amazon Linux.
PS. I'm using Amazon Linux AMI 2013.03
