I need to point a domain that I have here on DH to resources on AWS (ec2 servers behind an LB).
It is my understanding that in order to do this, I must
Set my domain to DNS only
create a CNAME record for *.domainname pointing to my LB
Is there anything else that I’m missing here?
How does that CNAME record handle an http request to the base domain (without a subdomain)?
Will there be any differences in the way http and https requests are handled?
Is there any reason that this minimal setup would result in domainname forwarding to www.domanname?
