AWS Elastic Beanstalk Zone Apex

1. Go to your AWS Management Console and click on the Amazon EC2 tab. Click on Load Balancers and look for the load balancer your Elastic Beanstalk instance is using. Note down the Load Balancer DNS Name (A Record) and Hosted Zone ID. You will need these 2 values later.

2. Now click on the Amazon Route 53 tab. Double click on the existing hosted zone or create one if it doesn’t exist.

3. Click on Create Record Set and select Type A – IPv4 address with Alias set to Yes. Use the values you noted down in step 1 for Alias Hosted Zone ID and Alias DNS Name. Note we initially tried this step on Chrome but that didn’t work. It worked fine when we did step this on Firefox.

4. Try your new configuration by going to http://yourdomain.com.
