CloudFront is Amazon’s content delivery network (CDN). Framer utilizes CloudFront as its default CDN. You only require CloudFront when you need greater control over your hosting.


Log in to the AWS Management Console and go to CloudFront. Click “Create Distribution”.

Add your Framer domain in the “Origin Domain” field, optionally tweak your settings and click “Create Distribution”.

Once the distribution is deployed, click the link to access it. By visiting the distribution link, you can now view your Framer site hosted by CloudFront.
