Amazon S3 stores the site files and makes them publicly available. Nate demonstrates how to set up an Amazon S3 bucket and configure it for static website hosting.
- [Narrator] Amazon S3 is a cloud storage service…that's part of Amazon Web Services or AWS.…You'll use S3 to store your built site files,…which will then be distributed by Amazon CloudFront.…To get started, go to console.aws.amazon.com.…If you've never used AWS,…create an account using your email address.…Once you've signed in search for S3…or click the services menu at the top.…Now we need to create a bucket.…
For the bucket name I'm going to pick awesomestaticsites.com,…which is the domain name I bought.…The bucket name can be anything you want.…We'll keep the region as U.S. East,…the region doesn't really matter…because we'll have CloudFront distribute…the files everywhere.…Now I'll click next, and next again.…It's important that I pick…grant public read access to this bucket,…otherwise these files will be private.…And next again, and I'll create the bucket.…
Once the bucket is created I'll click on it…and then go to the properties tab.…On the static website hosting card,…I'll click on that and then click…use this bucket to host a website.…
