Creating Amazon S3 Static Websites
You can host a static website on Amazon S3. On a static website, individual web pages include static content and they might also contain client-side scripts. By contrast, a dynamic website relies on server-side processing, including server-side scripts such as PHP, JSP, or ASP.NET. Amazon S3 does not support server-side scripting.
This activity covers the process of using S3 to host a static website. We will start by creating a few sample files to serve as our example site.
