As user of the MongoDB Cloud Manager you can always contact MongoDB using
our Cloud Support website <https://cloud.mongodb.com/support>.
Unfortunately there is no setting in Cloud Manager which let’s you choose
the hostnames. The only way of using your own hostnames is to provision the
servers manually and then import them into Cloud Manager. Please have a
look at how to Add Existing MongoDB Processes to Cloud Manager
Alternatively you are able to create the SSL certificates and add DNS
aliases to your SSL configuration and certificate files after you created
them on *.example.com. You might want to have a look at this CAcert Wiki
<http://wiki.cacert.org/FAQ/subjectAltName> or apetec.com article
<http://apetec.com/support/GenerateSAN-CSR.htm> in regards to this.
As for the question if you should use elastic IP or not I can’t make any
recommendation as this depends entirely on your use case and is maybe best
asked in the AWS forum <https://forums.aws.amazon.com/index.jspa>.

I deployed a replica set on AWS with Cloud Manager with three mongodb
On AWS, each EC2 instance has a public domain name and a public IP like
- ec2-d1-c1-b1-a1.compute-1.amazonaws.com points to IP1
- ec2-d2-c2-b2-a2.compute-2.amazonaws.com points to IP2
- ec2-d3-c3-b3-a3.compute-3.amazonaws.com points to IP3
When I look into the Cloud Manager, the hotnames of my server are:
- mdb-0.group-name.1234.mongodbdns.com points to IP1
- mdb-1.group-name.1234.mongodbdns.com points to IP2
- mdb-2.group-name.1234.mongodbdns.com points to IP3
I own a domain name like example.com, and I want to generate an SSL
certificate for this domain to configure SSL on mongodb. But this
certificate will be generated for an *example.com <http://example.com>*
domain name, and not **.**mongodbdns.com <http://mongodbdns.com>*. Where,
into the Cloud Manager, should I specify to use my own domain names **.example.com
<http://example.com>* instead of **.**mongodbdns.com
Should I also use an Elastic IP for each EC2 instances, and let my domain
names **.example.com <http://example.com> *point to them?
