How To Host An Application On AWS:
Ubuntu is the platform of choice for AWS; as Ubuntu powers billions of mission-critical workloads around the world.
There are Two ways to Use Amazon AWS To host your Application.
Method 1 is the Unmanaged or more Technical method – where you directly sign up on aws.amazon.com, deploy your server, and run the operations using complicated command line codes.
You can search YouTube for tutorials on how to do that.
The 2nd Method however, is very easy and straight-forward!
It is the Managed and simple method.
In this method, you can use AWS servers via a middleman called Cloudways.
