I’m using Netlify to host a static app and using EC2 as my API server. I’m trying to use the domain name that I purchased on Route53 on Netlify and use it to point towards my EC2, but I’m having a tough time figuring out how this would work?
I don’t think I can let Netlify host my DNS records, because I’m using an Application Load Balancer on AWS which is behind a VPC. Haven’t confirmed this.
I’m thinking about creating a CNAME for api.mydomainname.com to handle my API requests and then create an A name for the base domain on Netlify.
Any thoughts on how best to handle this?
