Amazon CloudFront Wildcard CNAME Support

Yesterday Amazon announced support for wildcard cname’s with CloudFront. This feature makes it easy to serve multiple subdomains for a website from the same CloudFront distribution without having to modify the distribution to include each subdomain.

Wildcard CNAMEs make it easier for you to use a wildcard SSL certificate with CloudFront’s custom SSL certificate feature. The custom SSL certificates was itself a feature recently added.

It is good to see that Amazon are investing in improving Amazon CloudFront but there are still many issues and areas that can be improved. I have blogged about them previously in these posts.
