If we talk about in terms of DNS records, we cannot add a CNAME record against the apex. We can map an IP address to the apex as an A record.

So, all we needed was a static IP address for our load balancer which we could map to our root domain and point it to the Load Balancer. The small issue…

We may encounter scenarios where we need to restrict user accounts & services to be accessed in particular regions and isolate other regions from the user. For example, you have two different environments (Production & Test) in two different regions. You want to restrict your dev team to only access the services in your test environment and not the ones in your production environment. In this case, region-based access is a handy thing. You can create an IAM user with a custom policy attached to it that lets the user access only the services in a specified region.

AWS is one of the best cloud services provider across the globe and WordPress is one of the most used CMS platforms. In this article, we will have a full walkthrough on setting up WordPress with LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack on Amazon EC2. For using EC2 service you need an account on AWS. If you have an existing account you can use it, or you can start with a free account on AWS. We will be using Ubuntu 18.04 Linux ami for our EC2 instance.

In this article, we will go through the following steps:

  1. Create an EC2…

EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) is a service provided by Amazon Web Services which lets you set up your own virtual servers. AWS has several data centers across the globe where these services are provided which they call “Region”. Every region is isolated from other regions and their services too. In this article, we will explore how we can migrate an EC2 Instance from one region to another region.

I have already created an EC2 Instance in the ap-south-1 (Mumbai) region and I will migrate it to the ap-southeast-1 (Singapore) region.
