My domain is hosted on GoDaddy. Is it possible to forward my domain to LoadBalancer's DNS?

Example steps:

Add Domain Forwarding on GoDaddy Forward to: HTTP://"" 301 Permanent Forward with masking

Will that work?

If yes, do I need to remove the "@" on the DNS Zone file? It's currently pointing to an Elastic IP wordpress instance.

As much as possible I want to avoid using Route 53.

Why not add CNAME Alias for your domain which will point to – Abhishek Anand Amralkar Oct 1 '13 at 10:25
why are you trying to avoid route53? – Alex Oct 1 '13 at 22:49
The IP changes on Load balancer. I tried pointing www to LoadBalancer's DNS name but the IP shows. ~ I just like to use GoDaddy for now. Amazon is complicated for me but I'm trying to because our company uses it. – Mizuki Oct 2 '13 at 3:40
