As website owners, we encounter many challenges when it comes to hosting our blogs, websites, and online businesses in general.
We most rely purely on web hosting companies to support all of our online assets and this is not always the best way of doing things.
What happens when you get bigger, in terms of receiving lots of visitors?
What happens when you launch a product or service and you get a flood of traffic that will crash your server?
What usually happens is that your website slows down, and your user experience becomes painful and visitors just leave.
Or worse, your web hosting company decides to terminate your account because you’re using too many server resources, or they ask you to pay for a dedicated server which can cost you $150-$300 extra per month.
You cannot afford to lose money due to a minor oversight that would’ve taken just a few hours of your time.
To prevent this from happening, you typically want to host your files on an external server. However, the problem with this is that those costs will add up fast and you’ll simply run into the same situation.
So, in other words, I recommend that you host your images, large video, audio files, or other files on Amazon S3.
Amazon S3 allows you to host very large files and utilize their global reach and super-fast speeds for a very low cost.
The problem with this though is that if you read their technical documentation, it is very difficult to understand for someone who is just getting started.
So, if you don't have hours to spend wading through the text, we've decided to create a video course that will allow you to understand how to do all of this in less than a couple of hours.
Soon you will be on your way to hosting your big files and protecting them.
Video #1: Introduction and Quick Overview
As always you will be given a quick introduction to how everything works and a quick overview of what's inside this video course.
Video #2: Calculating Your Costs
Ever wanted to know how much it would cost to host these large files on Amazon? The great thing is that you pay as you go, and if you are used to paying hundreds of dollars per month then this is going to be a lot cheaper. But with that said, it's very important to have an idea of how much you are potentially going to pay in the future, and you will learn how to do this.
Video #3: What You Need
Before we jump right in I am going to cover exactly what you need to have in hand before we get started.
Video #4: Recommended Software and Why
There are several pieces of software that you can use to upload your files, both paid and free, and we'll discuss why we have recommended these.
Video #5: Connect to S3
While there is a range of software that we recommend, we will be focusing on one because it is super easy to use.
Video #6: Buckets and Folders
We'll see how to create Amazon buckets and folders so that you can get ready to upload your files.
Video #7: Prevent Unauthorized Access
If you want to know how to protect your Amazon bucket from unauthorized access, I'll show you how to create an Amazon policy to achieve this. You'll prevent people that aren't supposed to access it from costing you money.
Video #8: Transferring Files PC to Amazon
When you’ve set everything up, you're going to see how easy it is to upload files from your PC or Mac to your Amazon account.
Video #9: Getting URL to Each File
Once your files have been uploaded it's time to get the direct URL to each file so you can place them on your website for people to download.
