Amazon Lightsail - Best Practices for WordPress on AWS

Amazon Lightsail

Lightsail is the easiest way to get started on AWS for developers, small businesses, students, and other users who need a simple virtual private server (VPS) solution.

The service abstracts many of the more complex elements of infrastructure management away from the user. It is, therefore, an ideal starting point if you have less infrastructure experience, or when you need to focus on running your website and a simplified product is sufficient for your needs.

With Amazon Lightsail you can choose Windows or Linux/Unix operating systems and popular web applications, including WordPress, and deploy these with a single click from preconfigured templates.

As your needs grow, you have the ability to smoothly step outside of the initial boundaries and connect to additional AWS database, object storage, caching, and content distribution services.
