I have a question what should I use for subdomain redirection

I want to create and then redirect it to

I try to do thet with nginx

server{ server_name 301 }

But nothing happens when I try to open

So I get idea that maybe I should use route53 if so what do you think what record should I put ?

Route53 can’t return redirects, it’s DNS system. You need to us Nginx.

Your problem seems to be the Nginx config file is incorrect. I’ve copied and pasted a working Nginx config I have and changed the domains for you

server { listen 80; server_name; return 301; } Your config appears to simply be missing is the word “return” in front of the 301.

If you want to redirect https then that’s a little more work, as you need a certificate and such. You can find examples online.
