To make your domain work with your website hosted on behind a NodeBalancer, you need to create DNS records that point to the NodeBalancer's public IP address. Specifically, you should create an A record that uses the NodeBalancer's IPv4 address. Once the DNS records are set up and propagated, you should be able to access your website using your domain, assuming the backend nodes are deployed, configured, and show as "up".
