AWS Web Hosting Solutions: Speedy Way to Launch Your Website

Amazon Web Services provides cloud web hosting solutions that offer various businesses, non-profit and government organizations with low-cost ways to deliver their websites and launch their web applications. AWS Web hosting solutions facilitate a wide range of website hosting options including marketing, rich media, or e-commerce websites to the users by selecting the right one for them.

In the present scenario, there are mainly three types of AWS Web hosting solutions available for different websites-

Simple Website Hosting

A simple website is the one that typically consists of a single web server which runs either a Content Management system (CMS), an e-commerce application, or a development stack. Simple websites are used for low-to-medium traffic sites having multiple authors and are prone to frequent content changes, such as marketing websites, content websites, or blogs. The software makes it easy for the user to build, manage and serve the content of the website. They provide a simple layout for websites that might grow in the future. Having typically low-cost and easy in maintenance, these sites require IT administration exclusively for the web servers. However, they lack high-availability and scalability beyond a few servers.

Amazon Lightsail

AWS provides Amazon Lightsail that includes all the basic requirements to jump-start a simple website, such as a virtual machine, SSD-based storage, data transfer, DNS management, and a static IP within a low, predictable budget limit. Users can deploy their website with just a few clicks. They can choose among a variety of application templates and operating system that suits best for their website and are all set to launch their virtual private server in less than a minute. Amazon Lightsail helps in managing the web server, DNS, and IP addresses directly from its console.

Some of the striking features of Amazon Lightsail include:

  • Highly available storage
  • Speedy & secure networking
  • Access to AWS Services
  • Powerful API
  • Simplified load balancing

Static Website Hosting

A static website is the most basic type of website and is easiest to create. They deliver HTML, JavaScript, images, videos and other files to the website visitors. Unlike dynamic websites, they do not require server-side application code, such as PHP or ASP.Net and are used to deliver personal or marketing sites. These websites are very low-cost, require no server administration, but have high-levels of reliability and scale to handle enterprise-level traffic with no additional workloads.

Amazon S3

Amazon Web Services provides Amazon S3 web hosting solution to serve the static website needs. Amazon S3 is an object storage having a simple web service interface to store and retrieve any amount of required data from anywhere on the web. It delivers 99.999999999% durability and scales past trillions of objects across the globe.

Some of the examples of Enterprise Website that uses AWS to host their online markets are Lamborghini, Novartis, Netflix, Expedia, Airbnb, and many others. Enterprise websites are the most advanced websites that deal with a huge traffic because of their increased demand for service. These websites use multiple Amazon cloud services and are expanded to various availability zones. They are rich in availability, scalability, and performance, but need higher amounts of management and administration as compared to simple and static websites.
