Step 8: Create a custom DNS Name (optional)

Changing the DNS Name for ease of use

It is possible to modify the DNS Name after you create a Load Balancer Listener for ease of use and reference by your applications, but it isn't necessary to run your application or complete this tutorial.

To skip this step, proceed to test your application and complete this tutorial.

Once the load balancer is created, DuploCloud programs an autogenerated DNS Name registered to demo-service in the Route 53 domain. Before you create production deployments, you must create the Route 53 Hosted Zone domain, if the DuploCloud staff has not already created one for you. For this tutorial, it is not necessary to create the domain.

Estimated time to complete Step 8: 5 minutes.


Before securing a Load Balancer, verify that you accomplished the tasks in the previous tutorial steps. Using the DuploCloud Portal, confirm that:

Select the Tenant you created

In the Tenant list box, on the upper-left side of the DuploCloud Portal, select the dev01 Tenant that you created.

Creating a Custom DNS Name

  1. In the DuploCloud Portal, navigate to Kubernetes -> Services. The Services page displays.

  2. From the Name column, select demo-service.

  3. Click the Load Balancers tab. The ALB Load Balancer configuration is displayed.

  1. In the DNS Name card, click Edit. The prefix in the DNS Name is editable.

  2. Edit the DNS Name and select a meaningful DNS Name prefix.

  3. Click Save. A Success message briefly displays at the top center of the DuploCloud Portal.

An entry for your new DNS name is now registered with demo-service.

Checking your work

The DNS Name card displays your modified DNS Name.
