I would suggest you use an Elastic IP and a Route 53 hosted zone:

  • Create and attach an elastic IP to one of your instances
  • Create a Hosted Zone and add the domain name as your wish. 
  • Add the Nameservers
  • Wait from few minutes to 2 days for the DNS propagation

Elastic IP is free of charge and you can up to 5 at a time for free. But if you don’t use it, you will be charged a little.

Also, check out this blog to understand how Route 53 works and how to create a hosted zone.
