My website is not reachable with having correct DNS Records

Hi there,

I transferred my domain from to Route 53 from a different domain registrar. After that I tried to migrate my website from github pages to S3. Here are the steps I followed;

  • Created a bucket for with name buraktas.com and configured it as web site hosting and also attached public read policy. I also created another bucket www.buraktas.com and set it to be a redirect bucket.

  • Added two A - Ipv4 address type record set by giving related S3 endpoint aliases.

Now, the thing is I can open my website from http://buraktas.com.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com/. However, buraktas.com and www.buraktas.com are not reachable. When I ping them I get

ping: cannot resolve buraktas.com: Unknown host

I really appreciate for your help.

Thanks,
Burak

Hi,

The Route 53 name servers that you specified for your domain registration aren't the name servers that Route 53 assigned to your hosted zone. I'd guess that you have multiple hosted zones and you accidentally chose the wrong one when you got your name servers. You'll need to get the name servers for the buraktas.com hosted zone and assign them to the buraktas.com domain registration.

Hi,

The name servers in the buraktas.com hosted zone don't match the name servers for the domain registration. Here's how you fix that:

  1. Get the names of the name servers that are assigned to the hosted zone. See "Getting the Name Servers for a Public Hosted Zone" in the Route 53 Developer Guide:

https://docs.aws.amazon.com/Route53/latest/DeveloperGuide/GetInfoAboutHostedZone.html

  1. Update the domain registration to use the name servers that you got in step 1. See "Adding or Changing Name Servers and Glue Records for a Domain":

https://docs.aws.amazon.com/Route53/latest/DeveloperGuide/domain-name-servers-glue-records.html

Hi Scott,

Thanks for your help. I have updated name servers, however, still not able to reach them. Additionally, I got the success mail from aws after changing name servers.

Many many Thanks Scott! I never figured out that I copied wrong name servers. Everything is working fine now. Thanks again!
