I'm having a problem understanding how "white label" nameservers might work, at Amazon Route53. Here is what I have:
destination.com is hosted at
hosty.com and registrar has
ns2.hosty.com as nameservers.
Using alias A record at aws route53 to handle
mysite.com -> www.mysite.com,
www.mysite.com has a CNAME pointer to
www.destination.com. Registrar has the normal Amazon
ns-xxx-aws-xx.net as nameservers.
At this point, everything works correctly and any requests for
mysite.com will route to
www.destination.com (WordPress mulitsite subdomains). Works great - site comes up as expected.
Now I want to implement white-label nameservers at route53. I followed the directions I found in the documentation, and believe I've set up a set of nameservers using a new domain name I registered. When I ping these, they resolve to the original route53 IP addresses for the Amazon nameservers, so I think they are correct.
ns1.mypath.net ns2.mypath.net ns3.mypath.net ns4.mypath.net
I want to be able to go to the registrar for
mysite.com, set the new
mypath.net nameservers there -- and have requests to
mysite.com route to the hosted zone for
www.mysite.com at aws, so it ends up redirecting to
www.destination.com (as it was with the normal aws nameservers specified).
I just can't figure out how to wire this.
