Hello fellow webnauts,
I’m hoping some of you may be able to set me on the straight and narrow path to understanding Cloudflare and AWS.
I recently left 1and1 (transferred my domain to Cloudflare and my contents to AWS S3). I was excited to see Cloudflare supported domain transfers and felt confident my site will be safe, fortified behind their infrastructure.
Now to the nitty-gritty.
I created my S3 buckets (example.com and www.example.com… thank you very much). I’ve added my S3 bucket CNAME (CNAME example.s3.aws…whatever it said for the End Point I copied from) to Cloudflare. And now, I’m at a stand still.
I don’t know what to do about setting up the Hosted Zones in Route 53 to work with Cloudflare. I don’t know if I need to set up a Certification or Cloudfront to provide HTTPS security? Am I missing anything else?
Don’t let my use of terms fool you, btw. I’m naive to all these packet-pushing protocols and whatever else these computers do to talk to each other. It’s more-or-less “greek” to me. I end up copying -verbatim- whatever I read (which makes my adaptability in these scenarios, complete bupkis).
So please take pity on me.
