    Hi, I'm quite new to AWS but I managed to install sendy on an linux instance with a domain on Route 53, so, I'm a fast learner (and good at watching youtube how-to videos).

    3. Amazon CloudFront gives you a domain name. This domain name is that you must register on Amazon Route 53 as Zone Record Set, Type A, Alias Target.

    4. Finally after a few minutes, and could you enter or whatever ...
