I have a domain name from MediaTemple that I would like to point to a server EC2 instance on AWS. On my registrar's web site I specified AWS name servers. Using Route 53 I created specified DNS record (NS, A, SOA). I waited > 24 hours for changes to propagate but I can't access my website via my domain name.

Checking my records using a site https://www.whatsmydns.net/#A/mywebsitehere.com I see that my A records are failing. The NS records look fine.

I have an A record defined in hosted zone. Not sure where to go from here.

enter image description here


You do not have an A record for example.com. You have an A record for *.example.com, in which example.com is not included. You will need two records.

  • facepalm. thank you. for some reason i thought that *.example.com includes example.com... Aug 27 '14 at 15:22
