Hosting website on S3 with custom domain name (Hands-On)

Lecture description

In this lecture, we will see how to host static website on S3. However AWS provides custom aws dns names for website hence we need to map our own domain name to AWS provided dns name. This is done using AWS Route53 service. Here for this exercise, I have got my domain from Godaddy and I updated godaddy DNS to resolve to AWS Route53 DNS. Then added record set in AWS Route53 to point the my custom domain to S3.

Note that AWS S3 does not provide a single IP address for websites hosted on S3, hence we have to use Route53 Alias record set to point our domain name to S3 DNS.
