I have my static website hosted on bigrock.com.. (xyz.com). I recently created a webapp which I am hosting on Amazon AWS. I wanted my subdomain sub.xyz.com to be redirected to the app deployed on AWS.

I created a subdomain in bigrock and redirected the same to the URL of the EC2 instance in AWS. When I did that when I access sub.xyz.com the URL in the browser changes and I get redirected to the amazon app.

How do I hide the EC2 URL and have the user operate out of sub.xyz.com. Also, when I do this, any other URLs like sub.xyz.com/something or sub.xyz.com?something=somethingelse should also work.

Could you please tell me what I need to do on the CPanel of bigrock to make this happen?

Did Amazon AWS provide you with the IP address for your server where you have hosted your application? If yes, you can try adding an A record for the sub-domain and point it to that IP address.

I just did that.. Didn't know where to do that until now. Then saw the simple DNS Zone editor link on the cpanel. Thanks! – sethu Apr 3 '14 at 7:23
