Hosting static website on AWS Amplify
2 min read
AWS Amplify is a set of tools and services for building and deploying cloud-powered applications. It includes a library of pre-built UI components, a command-line interface for building and deploying your applications, and a backend platform for hosting and scaling your app. AWS Amplify makes it easy to build and deploy applications quickly, with a focus on improving the developer experience.
AWS Amplify is free to use, and many of the services and features it provides are also free. For example, the AWS Amplify CLI is free to use, as are the pre-built UI components and the backend platform.
However, some of the services and features provided by AWS Amplify do have costs associated with them. For example, if you use the storage or database features of AWS Amplify, you may be charged for the use of underlying AWS services like Amazon S3 or Amazon DynamoDB. Similarly, if you use the authentication or authorization features of AWS Amplify, you may be charged for the use of underlying AWS services like Amazon Cognito.
