I wanted to see if it anyone has hosted a static website from a DO space using a custom domain. For comparison, I’d like to see how we can achieve this similarly to how you might do this with an S3 bucket: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/dev/website-hosting-custom-domain-walkthrough.html

Any ideas? Thanks!

Hey @hakawati,

I believe that this is not yet possible out of the box. You could use a small Droplet with Ngnix and upload your static website there.

But this is a great idea, sounds like it’d be super useful!

It looks like someone has had the same idea before and has posted it on our Product Ideas board. The best thing to do would be to head over and add your vote to it, as well as adding any additional information in the comments for exactly what you’d like to see implemented!

Hope that helps!
