I registered a domain with a .gd-extention on uniteddomains and want it to transfer to amazon web servers (aws).

The problem is that aws has 4 dns-domains for the website (for example .com and .net), but none has a .gd-extention.

What do I have to do to get this .gd on aws?

1 Answer 1


Nameservers needn't have the same extension as the hosted domain, just use whatever amazon throws at you

  • That means: when my Domain at United Domains is xyz.gd, at Amazon Web Servers I can use a xyz.com? That works?

  • your own domain stays xyz.gd. the nameservers should look like ns1.something.com, ns2.something.com etc
