Adding CloudFront and a Domain to Web-Enabled AWS S3 Bucket

In this article, we will create a CloudFront distribution and link it to a registered domain (microfrontends.info). We will work with AWS CloudFront, Route 53, S3, and Certificate Manager. This article builds over the previous article.

After we deployed to the web-enabled AWS S3 bucket, we can browse to the bucket through the following URL http://mfe1.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com/

You noticed that next to the URL it says “Not Secure”. This is because we are using HTTP instead of HTTPS. To be able to get a certificate, we need to create a CloudFront distribution, first. CloudFront, which is also known as CDN or Edge Servers, is responsible for Caching your content globally and provide less traffic travel. Let’s add AWS CloudFront to our S3 bucket.
