Creating a static website in 5 minutes using S3 on AWS

• Cloud platform: AWS • Tools used: Atom (Text editor), S3 (AWS) • Languages: Html

Project Status: Concept – Minimal or no implementation has been done yet, or the repository is only intended to be a limited example, demo, or proof-of-concept.

The following gist is part of my AWS Solution Architect - Associate exam preparation.
It can help you as a web entrepreneur, web bloggers, to deploy a static website very quickly using AWS.


Steps
1. Create a bucket on S3 named mywebsitebucket054485
2. Change the number since you must have a unique bucket name on S3)
3. Create three files, index.html, error.html, about.html
4. Upload the files in the S3 bucket
