I created a site and purchased a domain, created 2 S3 buckets, set up my dns records(herein I think is the problem), uploaded my index.html file, my pics etc… but I can’t get to my site via the domain name nor the endpoint in my bucket, I can reach it via the url to my index. Html page. I have tried to include cloud front but later disabled it. Www.hattfund.net is my domain.

It seems that your domain name is not resolving to the correct ip yet.
you may need to create/edit your record set on your domain hosted zone of your route 53, so that the entry name for both hattfund.net will point to an alias target of your s3 bucket.
the entry could be something like:
Name: hattfund.net
Alias: Yes
Alias Target: hattfund.net.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com

it usually takes a while till the dns propagate the changes…

I think the example from aws explains the required steps
https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/dev/website-hosting-custom-domain-walkthrough.html

I have followed the walkthrough and verified step by step🤬. I did find that my redirect document was Index.html not index.html. I changed that and my endpoint link worked. I still can’t access from http://hattfund.net or www.hattfund.net or hattfund.net. I can access from http://hattfund.net.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com/ and from https://s3.amazonaws.com/hattfund.net/index.html

I am waiting for my DNS records to propagate but thus far the issues remain.

That capital I was an issue. I do know that. It has been spelt that way all week:(

Do you see any issues with the DNS records?

So what I ended up doing was getting rid of my S3 bucket’s and creating a virtual instance with a Linux machine. Creating an Apache server. And then uploading my file to the Apache server. I may have accidentally put up the wrong version of the webpage. But it works. Now I just need to upload the finalized version of the webpage to my Apache server and all will be well. I appreciate all the help that I got from different people in the forum. Pretty rewarding feeling getting that first site up and knowing that it’s running and that you can access it from Hattfund.net or www.hattfund.net or from its IP address.

I figured out what I know from trial and error, if you have any specific questions feel free to ask. I watched a lot of YouTube and amazon has some good tutorials also. Sign up for the free tier and go make yourself a virtual machine(don’t lose the private key) and then watch how to make a server and execute a page, it is pretty easy. Have questions? Ask. Use ec2, I like it better than s3(buckets) but that’s me. Good luck!
