AWS Certificate Manager

Goal

About to make my API secured using SSL. So that I can finally have that precious “https”.


Tools

Working with AWS EC2, Load Balancer, Route 53 and Certificate Manager.


Problem

My hosting service is provided by Hostinger. I created subdomain name under one of my domain. AWS Certificate Manager was not able to issue the required certificate to make it https.


Solution

Had to add some new fields to DNS Zone on Hostinger cPanel.

Patriot Web(GMU)

George Mason University has this website called Patriot Web. This website is used for course registration, grade tracking and some other university related stuff. Website is interacted by all students, most of the employees including professor.

Truth is that the website is really bad. As part of a UI class me and my project parter choose to Uberize this website with guidance from professor.
