Description

The Update Route 53 Record action will update a record in a Route 53 Hosted Zone with information sourced from an EC2 instance. An A record can be created based on an EC2 instance's public IP address, or a CNAME record can be created based on an EC2 instance's public DNS name.

Depending on your requirements, this action could be used as a substitute for elastic IP addresses.
