Howdy @em774 !

Yeah I thought about it, but ended up deciding not to open up the additional complexity on DNS in the article since there are quite a few moving parts to adding a domain name etc (I assume that's what you mean) — I would happily write a follow up if that's useful for you? How I've preferred to attach domains in the past is through a CloudFront distribution and attaching domains names like that. But we then also need to discuss ACM for an HTTPS cert also.

Instead of Github Actions I guess there's similar hosted ones like Travis CI, Circle CI, Gitlab CI, or other self hosted ones like Jenkins or Drone. I guess it all depends on what you like. I like Github Actions just purely based on the fact most readers will have access to it (from a price perspective) and it's so low barrier to entry since most will also have a Github account.

Also it looks like you're new to — so welcome! 😄

Hey, thanks for your response and welcome. Yes that was exactly what I meant. I would enjoy reading about the next steps if you're up for writing it :)

I have never used Github Actions, I think I'll give it a go soon.
