I recently got a new domain (lets call it
testdomain.extample) from Route53 on Amazon. I further have a classic load balancer from AWS that I want requests to be forwarded to when somebody visits
Under hosted zones on Route53 I went over instructions to set
SOA (Amazon adds a bunch of
ns-xxx.* hostnames for NS and one for SOA). I also added an
A type record and added my load balancer (from a dropdown) to it as specified in the documentation.
When I run dig on my domain this is what I see (I don't see an answer section as I see for other working websites). It is about 12 hours since I updated on AWS. The browser shows "server IP address could not be found." error. Is there something I am missing in all of this?
