AWS Lightsail Configuration Service

If you are looking for using a virtual server for your website, but the higher costs of virtual hosting always stop you, then Amazon Lightsail is a very cost-effective solution of using virtual hosts. This service provides you with the complete configuration of your Amazon Lightsail instance.

Price: $99

Amazon Lightsail is a cloud platform that's cost-effective, fast, & reliable with an easy-to-use interface. It’s ideal for using for simpler workloads, quick deployments, and if you want to use an AWS server.

Amazon Lightsail can be considered for running following types of applications:

  • Simple Web Applications
  • Websites, Including Custom Code, WordPress, and eCommerce
  • Single-Server Business Software
  • Dev/Test Environments

Amazon Lightsail is therefore can be thought of as the best approach in case you want to use virtual servers, but your application is not that much large right now and the high costs of hosting the website on a virtual server like Amazon EC2 is not really ideal at this time. In such cases, use of Amazon Lightsail Server is quite preferable.

What all is included in this service?

We'll configure the server of your website on Amazon Lightsail as per the Lightsail monthly plan availed by you. Whether you are doing a fresh website setup or you're migrating your website from another server to Lightsail, both the cases are covered by us. But if you want us to migrate your website to Amazon Lightsail from any other server or from AWS EC2 server, then you'll also need to purchase our Website Migration Service as migrating all the files along with database will be done under the migration service.

Are you using a Shared Hosting Server?

If yes, then switching to Amazon Lightsail can prove to be the right option for you! You’ll get most of the features of Amazon EC2, but at lower prices than those of Amazon EC2.

Why switch to Amazon Lightsail from a Shared Hosting Environment?

If you are currently hosting your website on a shared server where you are provided with an access to a Cpanel account to manage your server, then you can easily relate to the below points:

Complete Cloud Feel

You can look at Amazon Lightsail as a lighter version of Amazon EC2, so you’ll get all feel of Amazon EC2. This is a kind of a virtual server where all the server resources can be managed independently for your particular website and unlike shared hosting servers, you are not bound to use the limits applied commonly on the server.

Very Cost Effective

Amazon Lightsail offers many monthly plans which are affordable and cost effective that would not cause a burden on your pockets and lets you enjoy the benefits of using Virtual Server in minimum costs possible.

The prices are comparable to hosting charges on most of the Shared hosting servers.

No Boundation on Changing Permissions

If you are using a shared hosting environment, you cannot change global permissions on the server while Amazon Lightsail provides you a virtual server environment where you can change such permissions.

Easily Scalable

Unlike Shared Servers which are rigid in terms of their capacity to handle resources & network load, Amazon Lightsail can easily deal with load of increased network resources resulted from expansion and growth of your website/ideas.


Just like users have trust in security offered by AWS Cloud, so the same level of security they can expect for a Lightsail instance.

Easy Integration with Other AWS Services

If you are thinking about using any other AWS service/services, then integration of that service/services with Amazon Lightsail is easy. While if you are using a shared server, then using AWS service in integration with that server is not that simple.
