With a market share bigger than Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and IBM Soft Layers combined, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is now a global leader of cloud services. One of the reasons why it’s so popular among users in the Pay-per-Use system: you only pay for as much of the service as you actually use, which means you can control your spending and not overpay. Initially launched in 2006, AWS now offers over a hundred solutions, including but not limited to storage, databases, analytics, networking, and developer tools.
One of the most beginner-friendly ways to start using AWS is called Lightsail. It is a virtual private server (VPS) solution, ideal for small businesses, students, and developers. In this AWS Lightsail and Wordpress tutorial, an experienced full-time developer Shakzee Arain will teach you how to use Amazon Lightsail for hosting your WordPress domain.
Amazon Lightsail is often used for websites, blogs, e-shops, and web applications. It provides you with a static IP, a virtual machine, some storage, and an ability to transfer data. The pricing is very affordable as well: you pay under four bucks for a month, and there is a free trial period available as well. A virtual private server that you run in the AWS cloud is called an instance: you can use them to run your code, store data, and build websites or apps.
Shakzee Arain will begin this Lightsail tutorial by explaining how Amazon Lightsail works, how you can create a personal account, get it verified, and then start your own instance.
