Map External Domain name to S3 Bucket

Though it sounds very straight forward to map domain names from the likes to godaddy to AWS S3 bucket, trust me it's not.

Following are the steps to do this mapping (assuming the domain name is

  • Create a bucket called It's mandatory to have bucket name exactly same as domain name.
  • Create a hosted zone in Route53 :
    • Add A record in the hosted zone.
    • Keep name same as domain name
    • Check the Yes option for Alias
    • In the alias Target select your bucket name (it takes few seconds to load bucket names)
    • Click Save Recordset
  • Go to your domain provider site. Go to NS (name server section).
    • Click add NS record
    • Add all records from Route53 Hosted zone, NS records section to above mentioned section

That's all you need to do to map bucket with a external domain name.

If you also want to redirect subdomain like www to  base domain, just add a bucket with same name. And mark it as Redirect bucket in the bucket hosting properties.

In order to further improve IEEE Final Year Project Domains practices we need to explicitly describe and utilise our knowledge about software domains of software engineering Final Year Project Domains for CSE technologies.

Those of you who have worked with the DynamoDB long enough, will be aware of the tricky scaling policies of DynamoDB. It allows user to explicitly set requests per second (units per second, but for simplicity we will just say request per second). User can do so for read as well as write operations. Anytime user can increase or decrease the provision capacity from DynamoDB web console and it will reflect immediately. Sounds all good....... Or not? What if you set provisioned capacity to 50 req per second but load on the server crosses 100 req per second? Requests gets throttled!! Mostly times out. What's worse? This can cause requests getting queued up in your web server. Which can potentially bring your entire server down. What if you set provisioned capacity to 1000 req per second but load on the server is only 100 req per second through out the day? You lose your hard earned money for remaining 900 req per second. What if you set it to 1000 req per sec and then realis

StackDriver Integration with AWS Elastic Beanstalk - Part 1

To manage multiple environments of your application its advisable that you create just two projects. One for production env and other one for non-prod.

For this tutorial, I'll create CodeHooDoo-Prod project. Once the project is created, StackDriver will ask you to link your AWS account resources to it for monitoring.  But as AWS CloudWatch has good monitoring and alerting support you can skip this one. Keep clicking continue until you get to monitoring console. Click on the logging. This is where you will get all the logs from your application server.
