I tried this and got billed because I forgot I had already launched an instance on my account. Also, after I setup my blog, I couldn’t setup a CNAME within my namecheap account.
I just wish they had a tutorial on how to setup the CNAME so we can point our domain to the amazon website instance link.
I’m looking to get a simple website for my brand. How much is Amazon web hosting after 1 year?
If i have my own domain, example http://www.abc.com then how can i host my website.
Great, but i want to know how to host my website on windows..
Well I could but if your asking questions like that your just going to run into another roadblock.These things are in the video also. You really need to read some guides offered on this stuff. I can’t really go through all the things about administrating a web server in a YouTube comment.
Are the web servers hardened or is it up to the client to deal with that?
Thank you. I’ve been wrestling with the ssh portion for about 4 hours. your lower case -i solved my problems. Ciao

hello Simone, Nice presentation 🙂 We just signed up for AWS and we would like to have some help to set up AWS for our existing ecommerce website. Currently we are hosted by ‘big rock’. We are looking forward to get shifted to AWS as we are looking forward for faster perfomence of our website. It would be great if you provide us face-to-face assistance to get it done! Thanks!
Trying to upload my website this way right now – I’m confused about where the zip file is when you “wget” it. You say “download the zip file content into your website” but I’m not sure where I was supposed to upload it to the web. DId I miss something?

can you help on migrating an existing website to the amazon aws ec2? I have the AWS EC2 instance UP and Running but don’t know where to start on the migration.
A couple of you were lost on where the hell /var/ww/html/ is. He doesn’t mention you need to install apache first generally to already have it. If you have dabbled in web servers before, you will recognize this. I’m speaking for default aws linux install, fyi.
no, u will be charged without alarm, according to someone’s experience
how do you i add my domain name to my free hosting website
no, but cheap and the service runs the same.
that’s great. except the web directory is not in /var on the Ubuntu version.
All it seems to want is my credit card details? I just want it to link it with the amazon ‘publisher’ widget or plugin. Does anyone understand what I’m getting at?
WordPress sites are targeted by bots. I guess you could just filter the bots out with a firewall or htaccess?

So, what if I have my own web app that I want to host on here? You just used wget to get a free one from AWS. How can I get my files from my PC uploaded to my EC2 instance?

I’m really lost here.. I’m using Windows 8 64bits. Should I install Apache on my PC in order to work?

Or use SSH secure shell for windows free version or PUTTY. Ming32 also has ssh by default. Just type SSH.
you can use rz sz from terminal when you have logined into your virtual machine using ssh.
On Ubuntu, you can install it by command: sudo apt-get install lrzsz

do you actually NEED to use that console? Is it an easier and modern way to do that? Let’s evolve from console!
Big problem i see if you use wordpress, bots can scrap your site more then you might want them to. Not sure what to do about ? Any ideas?
in the browser you can right click on the instance and use the java app make sure you update your java. In the menu select the plugins section and select SMTP or FTP etc.. The java app is similar to SSH Secure Shell. Very easy to use.
There is a easy to use Java app. Right click on the ec2 instance and select connect .
