When I use Amazon S3 Image storage, the images have their own urls instead of having urls at my website.

If I want the images to have a url on my website and use Amazon S3 at the same time with DigitalOcean. (For example Is that possible?

If it isn't possible then are there other alternatives to getting the same results?

In order to serve content from S3 using your domain name, you can set up a CNAME record pointing a subdomain to your S3 bucket. For instance, you could use something like: CNAME

For more info, check out the Amazon S3 docs: Customizing Amazon S3 URLs with CNAMEs

Is Digital Ocean got connectivity issue with Amazon AWS? My sites got very slow access to there.
