Logo for AWS

Wow, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a total do-it-yourself web server! I transferred my domain,, to Amazon’s Route 53 and had to wait for it to propagate. Then I installed WordPress. There were things that needed programming in an SSH client but they do have instructions — this was complicated. I set up a static IP address and added DNS records — this was also complicated. I had a ton of things that didn’t work the first time I did them so I had to do a lot of reading in the knowledge base — took forever. Anyway, I finally got everything connected correctly — at least I think so, at this moment.

Now it’s time to rebuild the website. The next Free Fiction Friday probably won’t be until next week, Oct. 15.

I wish I didn’t have this terrible habit of changing things, but I do learn a lot. Why switch to AWS? It’s cheap and gives me great control over my site and any future projects. I was using Dreamhost and I highly recommend them, mostly because they have great customer service.

Now, back to work.
