[resolved] Amazon S3 instead of Cloud Front (2 posts)

    Why would you use cloud front instead of Amazon S3 for CDN? What if I want all my pages to use SSL? Amazon cloud front charges $600 a month to support SSL where as Amazon S3 does not.

    Amazon s3 is not their CDN service per-say. Cloudfront is their CDN service so that is why we built that into Blue Hat Turbo. Amazon Cloudfront supports SSL by default without paying $600 a month. The $600 a month that you are referring to, is for custom SSL certificates only which would be used if you were trying to use a custom domain with cloudfront, but because blue hat turbo uses the default SSL cert with amazon cloudfront, there is no extra charge.

    Hope that helps :)
