  1. I logged into AWS and chose Rout 53
  2. The I have created a Hosted Zone and gave my domain name. ""
  3. Then there were 4 Name servers.
  4. I took them and logged into 1and1 control panel , And change my Name servers to this values.

Did you add an A record in route 53? – Nathan C Jul 8 '13 at 12:16
A record?? What is that?I have no idea. :( – Mohammed Fawzan Jul 8 '13 at 12:19
Set the A record and works like a charm. Thanks man.. :D – Mohammed Fawzan Jul 8 '13 at 12:37

You don't need route 53 if your registrar is 1and1 .

You just have to change your records from your domain to point to your Elastic IP.

If you want to move to Route 53, you have to change your nameservers for your domain at 1and1 to Amazon's and repeat the top step.
