In this video, Nate discusses how using CloudFront to cache the S3 files will mean faster loading times and support for HTTPS. He demonstrates how to create a CloudFront distribution and configure it properly.
- Amazon S3 will do a great job of hosting…your static site files, but adding CloudFront…will take your site a step further.…CloudFront lets you bring your own domain name…instead of using the long, ugly S3 bucket URL.…CloudFront will take the files in your bucket…and cache them in every region in the world…as close as possible to your visitors.…This means super-fast loading times for your site.…CloudFront also makes it easy to add…a certificate to enable HTTPS on your site.…All you need to do is set up a CloudFront…distribution for your S3 bucket.…
What I'll do is search for CloudFront…in the services menu up here.…And I want to open that up in a new tab.…I'll leave the other tab open because we need…to copy something from there a little bit later.…In the CloudFront control panel I want to create…a new distribution, and it'll be a web distribution.…For the origin domain name, I want to copy…that full S3 bucket URL and paste it there.…So I'll go back to S3, copy this URL,…and paste it for the origin domain name.…
