Use Amazon Lightsail for…
Lightsail is ideal for simpler workloads, quick deployments, and getting started on AWS. It’s designed to help you start small, and then scale as you grow.
Simple web applications
Easily deploy a web application with a few clicks. With pre-configured development stacks like LAMP, Nginx, MEAN, and Node.js., we make it easy to get your web application online.
Quickly create a website that shines. Create and customize your blog, e-commerce, or personal website with Lightsail's pre-configured applications like WordPress, Magento, Plesk, and Joomla.
Run your open source and commercial software for your business, with ease. Lightsail helps you quickly launch your line-of-business software, like file storage and sharing, backups, financial and accounting software, and much more.
Spin up a developer or test environment in seconds. Creating dev sandboxes and testing environments outside of your prod environment lets you test without the concern of breaking something. And, once you’re done, you can quickly destroy them.
Amazon Lightsail is designed to make your project easier
Lightsail automatically configures networking, access, and security environments, taking the guesswork out of launching your server.
Lightsail servers run on the AWS network that you trust. Configure your network simply and securely, including your IP addresses, DNS, firewall, and more.
Use the simple and flexible Lightsail API to extend your application or integrate it with external applications.
High availability storage
Every Lightsail server comes with high-performing, persistent SSD-based storage.
Easily scale your idea
As your ideas grow, a Lightsail load balancer can easily handle your increased traffic and heavier workloads. Plus, you can use the full force of AWS by connecting your project to other AWS services.
Lightsail plans always include a static IP address, DNS management, resource monitoring and alerting, remote access via SSH or RDP, and secure key management.
