Moving a static website to AWS S3 + CloudFront with HTTPS
This Christmas I managed to pick up the worst cold I’ve had in years. Instead of heading out and crushing the Festive 500km challenge I decided to stay home and brush up on some tech while performing some website housekeeping for willmorgan.co.uk.
In the 2 years I’ve had the site online, I’ve picked up some better practices and learned a few tricks. I had a few specific goals in mind:
- Enable HTTPS
Google will start penalising websites that don’t support HTTPS in 2017.
