Next-Level Static Content Hosting
In the last chapter, you finished getting your files hosted in AWS S3 and then you worked through getting your static content set behind a domain name using AWS Route53 to register a domain and to add DNS entries to point to the static web content hosted in S3. In this chapter, you’ll switch your focus from setting up resources in Amazon Web Services to some of the management challenges that come with hosting a website that has only static content. You'll take a look at how you can use HTML templates to give you an easy way to update parts of your static website. Next, you'll use embedded content in your website content to give a more dynamic feel. Finally, you'll end this chapter thinking very much outside the box by looking at technologies like client-side scripting and serverless architecture that will allow you to extend your static content and interact with your website visitors.
