I'm trying to create a personal/professional website within a college domain. From the university I've requested a static IP address which is directed to this website name: "http://lastname.someuniversity.edu". I would like to setup an Amazon EC2 instance to host a website.
I know how to create/administer the website on the EC2 instance - I just don't know how to get the EC2 instance to talk to the university (and vice-versa). The IT person at the university wasn't terribly helpful.
I'm familiar with how to setup a local machine to run as the webserver but am not sure how to get the Amazon EC2 instance to 'sit inside" the university.
