Create S3 Bucket
Create an S3 bucket that begins with the name
my-bucket-<ACCOUNT ID>) in the
us-east-1region. When creating the bucket, remember to uncheck the S3 Block Public Access settings. Upload the code for the static site. You will find the code (

Enable Static Website Hosting
You can use Amazon S3 to host a static website. On a static website, individual web pages include static content. They might also contain client-side scripts.
To host a static website on Amazon S3, configure an Amazon S3 bucket for website hosting, and then upload your website content to the bucket.
When you configure a bucket as a static website, you must enable website hosting, set permissions, and create and add an index document.
You must ensure that the S3 Block Public Access settings are disabled on the bucket, so that the files in the bucket can be made publicly readable.
Apply Bucket Policy
To make objects in your bucket publicly readable, write a bucket policy that grants everyone
Note that AWS will not permit you to create the policy if the S3 Block Public Access settings are still enabled on the bucket.
After disabling the Block Public Access settings, you can add a bucket policy to grant public read access to your bucket. When you grant public read access, anyone on the internet can access your bucket.
