In this webinar, we will demonstrate two new features that make it even easier for you to deliver content with Amazon CloudFront.
First, we’ll demonstrate how use can use Amazon Route 53, AWS’s authoritative DNS service, to configure an ‘Alias’ record that lets you use CloudFront to deliver your website at the root domain, or "zone apex." This feature enables you to map the apex or root (e.g. “example.com”) of your domain name to your CloudFront distribution. Then, visitors to your website can easily and reliably access your site from their browser without specifying “www” in the web address.
Second, we’ll demonstrate how you can use a custom SSL certificate with CloudFront to deliver content over HTTPS using your own domain name. With custom SSL domain names, your customers now get the low latency, reliability, and scalability benefits of CloudFront’s entire global edge location network when downloading your content over an SSL connection using your own domain name.
