fucken... thought I'd check out the AWS CDN (m.t uses S3, after all) and, uh, CloudFront is super-expensive, eh?
@ashfurrow that looks incorrect, what calculator is this?
I use Cloudfront with a custom domain and HTTPS with a a Amazon issued cert which doesn't cost me anything extra
That's probably the case if you set up your own CA in ACM which you will likely not need.
You can get free certs from ACM, if you employ them only on cloudfront or on elastic load balancers (essentially you cannot download the private key, you can only use them on managed resources)
@signaleleven ah that makes! Thanks!
@ashfurrow only if you need to support IE on Windows XP and need a non-SNI certificate
@ashfurrow I switched a project recently to Cloudflare because bandwidth/request cost is atrocious on CloudFront, and their WAF is a joke. I wish there were more choices here.
