How to Host Your Static Website on AWS S3


Every now and then, I decide to make a website simple enough to be static. Using the buckets from AWS S3, you can "quickly" set up your website. However, to properly set it up with a certificate and your own domain, there are a few extra steps that I always forget how to do. Thus, I'm making this article to help me in the future and hopefully help others too.

Create a CloudFront Distribution
