    Hi alexander.friesen,

    Thank you for pointing that out. That is a valid point. However, even if that were the case, moving the static content to S3 making it the host, then, creating dynamic content using CloudFront web distribution would not be very cost-effective compared to the right answer. Remember that, the question is asking the most cost-effective way among the choices, and while CloudFront can indeed handle dynamic content to some extent, its primary strength lies in efficiently delivering static assets, as outlined in the provided explanation. Additionally, the scenario did not mention moving the static contents elsewhere but rather focused on offloading some of the traffic from the on-premises server. By placing a CDN (CloudFront) in front of the on-prem server, you would effectively reduce the server’s load, even without migrating the files to S3.

    I hope this answers your query. Rest assured, we’ll incorporate our discussion into the rationale accordingly. Thank you for your valuable input.
