I recently bough a domain with Namecheap with the intention to point it to an AWS S3 static site. My problem is that putting 'www.mydomain.dev' and 'mydomain.dev' into the address bar leads me to an infinite "Connecting.." loop in Chrome and Firefox.
What I tried:
Funnily enough wayback machine sees the website
I can curl the domain just fine with
curl www.mydomain.devand it returns the contents of index.html
I'm wondering if the fact that the .dev TLD is HSTS - which means it absolutely requires HTTPS to function has something to do with my problem. But I remember getting a warning once inside Chrome that this domain requires HSTS. Right now I'm not getting anything, just "connecting..."
- I created the bucket with static website enabled and changed the policy to allow everyone to read it's contents:
The S3 endpoint is working fine
- Changed the Namecheap records to point to my AWS S3 static website endpoint (picture 1)
I really have no idea what to do now. The DNS records are fine, S3 bucket is up - I can't think of anything else to check.
