We then deploy the website content to Amazon's Simple Storage Service (S3), which Amazon describes as "designed for 99.999999999% (11 9’s) of data durability because it automatically creates and stores copies of all S3 objects across multiple systems." In simple terms, this means that your website's content is in a safe place, and its backing storage is likely to only go down if the rest of the Internet is experiencing a once-in-a-blue-moon event.
We serve your website from tens of Amazon EC2 servers across several availability zones in Virginia. In simple terms, if any of the servers or even a data center in which the servers are located were to go offline, your website would see no interruption. Your larger assets such as images are served through a content distribution network (CDN) called Amazon CloudFront, which quickly serves content from one of the hundreds of locations that's closest to your website's visitors. Finally, our web servers utilize a service called LetsEncrypt, through which we're able to install HTTPS/TLS certificates, serving your website in a way that allows your visitors to verify your identity.
