David Cruwys IdeasMen, Procedures Leave a Comment

In this lesson we run through how to setup Amazon CloudFront CDN to serve images directly from a website domain name and configure SEO friendly domain name via Amazon Route 53

In this example I will be working with www.FirstHomeBuyers.co

Amazon CloudFront CDN is a Content Delivery Network that can be used to deliver images, videos and other web resources such as JavaScript, CSS and static HTML.
Amazon S3 is a distributed file system for storing files in the cloud

This is part of the “How to set up a Blog” professional series and includes best practices and processes that we follow for building out the IdeasMen – Content Constellation system which allows niche markets such as Financial Broker Networks, Accounting Groups and Medical Practices to dominate SERP’s (Search Engine Ranking Positions) within their local & geographic regions.

You will use the Domain Name and CNAME in the next section to configure Route 53 so that the SEO friendly CNAME can access the generated ID subdomain located on CloudFront.net.

  1. Generated CloudFront.net domain name
  2. SEO friendly CNAME

cdn.firsthomebuyers.co will map to d2nkmto6yco7hx.cloudfront.net
