In this video, Nate explains why a domain name is important and how to get one. He also covers some important points for the domain registration process.
- [Instructor] A domain name makes it easy for visitors…to find your site on the public internet.…It's also necessary for adding a HTTPS to the site…which we'll do in a later step.…If you don't already have a domain name…go to a registrar like Namecheap and buy one.…I bought AwesomeStaticSites.com, but you can buy…any name or suffix that you want.…Make sure that an email address you control…is listed as the contact for the domain…when you register it.…Later, when we add HTTPS, Amazon will send…an email to verify ownership of domain.…If you use a WHOIS masking service…or a fake email address this verification step won't work.…
We'll come back to the registrar to change DNS settings…for your domain later.…First, we need to set up Amazon S3 and CloudFront.…
