Greetings from AWS!
In order to further troubleshoot this issue can you try to perform the following commands from your client machine:

dig <domain-name> @
dig <domain-name> @Route53-NameServer
dig <domain-name> +trace

nslookup <domain-name>
nslookup <domain-name> <Route53-NameServer>
nslookup -debug <domain-name>

You can also try to check the domain resolution across the globe using the following online tool:

I hope the above information will be useful.

I found the solution for the website not working

in apache2.conf file

I did this and it started working

<Directory /var/www/>
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None - change to AllowOverride All
Require all granted

And also I was using let's encrypt previously and when I moved to new ec2, I required to install the Let's Encrypt SSL once again
