Thanks for the feedback.
A. Based on the question, I don’t see a need for a Route 53 entry. If you want to use CloudFront, you could use the default .cloudfront.net DNS entry.
> I understand that the default .clodufront.net URL will work fine. However, for production environments, and on the AWS Exam (unless it is explicitly stated), we should always assume there is a Route 53 entry for a custom URL. It looks more professional for a company to have its company name on the domain name URL instead of .cloudfront.net.
B. I am very sure that CloudFront does not serve traffic using the insecure FTP protocol. Can someone double check this?
> As stated in the question – “it is a website that lists the FTP files”. It is still a webpage that lists files that can be downloaded by users. So technically it is not using an FTP protocol.
The users will be able to view the file listing on the website using their web browser. Clicking files will allow downloading – similar to downloading computer drivers, software, etc. via the internet.
The wording for FTP site may be confusing to be considered as FTP protocol, however, from my perspective I think wording FPT site is still popular among the internet people which means “a place to download a file/installer/etc/”
Hope this helps.
