I have inherited a website that uses AWS for DNS and load balancing. However, the website will be migrated away to another server and won't need load balancing anymore. DNS will remain at AWS. I would like to ensure I remove and add the right DNS settings to make this happen.
Current A record in Route 53:
domain.com. ALIAS http://dualstack.site-loadbalancer-XXXXXXXXX.eu-west-1.elb.amazonaws.com.
This is the current record that I assume redirects to the load balancer. I don't see any TTL configured in Route 53 for this record but when I
dig it consistently returns a 1 minute TTL. What I am planning to do is simply removing a record and adding a new A record instead:
I am not familiar enough with AWS to know if this would trigger any additional actions. I rather not touch the load balancer service at all; I simply want to direct traffic away to the new server.
Would this work or is there anything else I should take into account?
