Simple EC2 Instance + Route53 DNS

If you have a multi-environment AWS setup, and want a easy¬†way to resolve all EC2 instance using Route53 DNS, look no further! Currently I’m maintaining a production and staging environment on Amazon Web Services across multiple regions. We tend to not use ElasticIPs as that just increases cost, plus internally we resolve using Consul . There is one drawback with not using ElasticIPs, when ever the instance restarts they will be offered a new dynamic IP (we will solve this with automation).
