Hosting a Website

Hosting a website in OBJ is quite easy and can be done in a few simple steps. There are two different ways you can set up your OBJ bucket to host a static website.

First Method (Using the Web Interface):

  1. Create a bucket. Make sure to choose a bucket name carefully since this will be part of the web URL.
  2. Upload your index.html file and error.html file (optional) on the bucket that you just created.
  3. Once the bucket is created, click on Bucket Settings
  4. On the settings page, click on the blue Make Public button.

  5. Under Website Hosting, enter the name of your index.html (and optionally error.html) file and hit Submit.


Second Method (Using the CLI):

Accessing the Website

You can access the bucket by using the default URL which has the form http://<Bucket_name>.umiacs.io. Alternatively, you can also visit www.umiacs.umd.edu/~username to visit your website.
