Amazon S3

Posted 10 November 2007 - 01:15 PM

Hello, all.

I'm currently researching Amazon S3 for a project, and I'm kind of stuck on something - it looks like I can use Amazon S3 for storage, but...can I use it as my web host too? As in, buy a domain and point it at my amazon S3 area? Or will it only allow me to store files, as opposed to hosting my domain?

Does anyone know if you can host your website using only Amazon S3, without another third party hosting plan?

Thanks,
Girasquid

Edit: I got it figured out. You can use S3 for static files, but not for dynamic files - so you do need an actual web host if you're planning on serving anything other than static content.
