this is EXACTLY the situation I am in. I was going to submit a new topic until I found this one. I know it is marked solved but I am not exactly sure I have the details clear enough for me to feel comfortable moving forward.
The domain in reference is www.fwla.com
Here is my situation:
- registrarar: godaddy
- dns: route53
- web server: wordpress on load balanced ec2 instances with msql in RDS on AWS. we use plugins to send form info via email to our email (i.e. email@example.com sends form data from fxla.com to firstname.lastname@example.org). this can be changed to whatever method is most reliable.
- mail server: not setup yet but have MIAB ready to go on VULTR 2GB Storage instance. (i set up MIAB on a different domain and it works nearly flawlessly).
- sendy (this is most important as this is such an important piece of our business.). it uses amazon SES and SNS notifications to handle bounces and unsubscribes. please see sendy.co for information.
my sendy installation is located here: http://ec2-52-4-200-199.compute-1.amazonaws.com/login
I guess I am looking for a clear guide to a custom DNS setup for MIAB that won’t conflict with Load Balanced instances on AWS EC2 and AMAZON SES/SNS utilized by Sendy. Uless there are other suggestions.
for example above: I changed the “w” to “x” in the domain name above to deter bots.
