Point GoDaddy Subdomain to AWS Route 53

Published on:

So I have a domain from GoDaddy and I want to manage just one or more subdomains of that domain on AWS Route 53. Actually I tried to do this with my NetworkSolutions account, but on phone they said it is not possible.

Here goes with GoDaddy.

Pretty much followed this exactly. Helps if you select classic DNS manager in GoDaddy.

Ended up with this DNS file. So ratz.jsks.us and everything under it is managed by Route 53.
