Question

Can I host my static website on Spaces with custom domain?

It seems Spaces accepts custom subdomains (e.g. sub.example.com).

But what if I want to host my entire static website on Spaces? Can I throw all my HTML/CSS files there and map my domain to the CDN?

So instead of sub.example.com I would be able to access my website at: example.com.

Is it possible?

Hey there,

At this time we don’t offer static site hosting directly in-Cloud; you could set-up a small Droplet (with a reverse proxy, using Nginx or other software) to act as a middleman in this setup and get things working.

We are looking to introduce static sites later this year.
