Of course, I thought, I'm not going to be building out a purely static website, but I'll skim it anyway.

In a nutshell, this guide actually finally filled in several web management basics I had never fully comprehended nor appreciated. Basics like root vs www domains, redirects were welcome, and not at all pandering or remedial.

Then, there was the outstanding introduction to Cloudfront, with a clear and crisp way to introduce it, in proper order, to improve the world-wide performance of one's site. Beautiful job.

Finally, the consideration of how to estimate pricing, including very considerate sections noting practical considerations like "if only doing this to learn, this is where you'll want to clean up to ensure you do not get charged..."

This was my second getting started guide and it did not disappoint. Invaluable.

I had great hopes of moving my website to a better location that I could more easily manage (and that might be cheaper). But this guide certainly didn't let me do that. I completed the tutorial but still do not have a working website. I tried various other things, and that didn't work either. Route 53 seems to come at the end of the documentation (even after deleting instances) and I don't understand if it is required for this or not. Anyway, didn't work for me. You would hope a Getting Started would, well, get someone started. Not the case.

Very well written and explained. Very useful. You can use it as a help how-to guide and reference as well.

Dont skip this starter because it explains how easy it is to one setup static hosting, plus edge servers for caching content closer to consumer, domain naming service configuration and a node for storing older log files.

Nice to have a step by step guided tour of how it is done. The details no longer match the dynamic reality of Amazon S3, but the essential ideas remain useful. Just had to poke around a bit in Amazon's updated interface to find what I needed.

Excellent way to get started and up and running, takes less than 10 minutes.
