i am not sure if anyone here is able to help me on this, but i am trying to set up HTTPS domain name forwarding. i have a domain managed in aws route53, but it seems i do not understand enough about pulumi/aws to be able to create domain forwarding. to some service i have running in a kubernetes cluster. is anyone able to provide any guides/examples that would be helpful? i am not very experienced in working with devops so any help is appreciated.

HTTP(S)-level domain forwarding is a fiction created by "user friendly" registrars
DNS only provides the IP address for a name, and all Route53 does is DNS
if you want HTTP-level redirects, you need to use an HTTP-level service (API Gateway, Application Load Balancers, nginx on an ec2 instance, etc)
