    Hi,

    I found a website that hosted on Amazon like this http://s3.amazonaws.com/baldblad/index.html

    Which type of Amazon service they used to host that site ? EC2 or S3 or CloudFront on Amazon ?

    baldblad is a unique username

    Thanks

    It's Amazon S3, it's used for storage and can be accessed via the username link, so you can store your static HTML site like the above site.

    once you create your static html, you just need to create a bucket then edit your DNS for your domain and add a CNAME entry to point to that bucket on S3.
