Amazon CloudFront, the easy to use content delivery network, now supports the ability to assign a default root object to your HTTP or HTTPS distribution. This default object will be served when Amazon CloudFront receives a request for the root of your distribution – i.e., your distribution’s domain name by itself. This feature should make it easier for you to serve all of your static content from edge locations close to your end users and provide them with a better experience. You can read more about the default root object feature in the Amazon CloudFront Developer Guide. For more information on Amazon CloudFront, visit the Amazon CloudFront page.
