comment DNS: CNAME as www record
This is where I get confused: until I use Route53 which I will end up using, my current dns zone records are example.com and www A records pointing to an IP. I need to point them to the ELB so I would make both CNAMES. But that's wrong right because the example.com one has to be an A record? Is there no way then not to use Route53?

thanks for your answer. so you are saying that the domain apex (*.example.com) requires an A record? It can't be a CNAME unlike www?

I would think that's what one is supposed to do but then why are the DNS tools checking for A records and IP addresses?

Appreciate your answer. Perhaps I have to use Amazon's nameservers Route 53 was a constraint I considered as possible.
