18 Feb 2011
Amazon made some more tweaks to Amazon S3
that make it even easier to host your entire static web site at Amazon S3
Some of the new features include:
- Website endpoints for US Standard, US West, EU, or Asia Pacific regions
- Returns a root document for each bucket
- Returns HTML error document instead of XML error message
- Custom error documents for specific error codes.
You can enable your bucket as a website using the following tools:
You can expect popular CMS platforms like Wordpress
, Moveable Type
, and Drupal
to start publishing all images and site content to Amazon S3.
This would allow site owners to to take advantage of the low cost storage, scalability, and global distribution provided by Amazon S3
Amazon CTO Werner Vogels
is already running his All Things Distributed
blog completely on Amazon S3.
