I thought this is kinda what CF is about, but it seems it is not so simple or I am looking through wrong menus.
I am creating dynamic pages and pushing them to AWS S3 buckets. Those pages have an ugly URL, which I want to hide with pretty domain names.
How can I have my examplecom at Cloudflare and have all requests to example.com redirected/tunneled to the origin server at xxx_yyy_zzz_amazonaws.com? I can’t use the HTTP 301, because then the browser will show the actual URL of AWS.
Also can all this be done with the Cloudflare REST API?
Hmm ok what if I do not care if the bucket does only work with HTTP? CF would terminate TLS and then use http with origin server? Is this possible? Since the website content is static I do not really care about TLS all the way to the origin.
Really I am just trying to cut costs here and that is the reason I want to drop CloudFront from the equation. If I have understood correctly I do not need Route53 in any way?
Maybe this is not the most cost effective way to do dynamic pages with proper domains? I might just rent a web hotel and get a lot of web pages for 2$/month.
The idea was born because CF offers free DNS and if seemed logical to use S3 buckets as a cheap way to host the actual files. “How to provide a cheap simple web page to a customer with almost at the cost a just a domain?”.
