Well besides uploading your files to Amazon which frees up server space the service offers a tremendous performance boost with the Accelerated option enabled.

Currently my S3 service is running me less than a dollar a month. Cloudfront is also pretty cheap. However, Amazon's Elastic search runs me over a hundred a month. Amazon offers some great services.

I do believe there is a free tier to use from Amazon for Elastic Search, besides way better search returns the site is much faster loading.

Once you get everything working right take a peek at @The Old Man product:

But don't take my word for it measure your own performance before and after: https://www.dotcom-tools.com/website-speed-test.aspx?

Just looking at the pricing page, I have no idea what I am doing.

My site is using 55GB of it's 60GB limit.  I can move to 100GB, but that's another $20 a month.  It's 90% attachments.

Is moving to AWS a good alternative?

Thanks
