help with finishing up migration from hosting provider

0

I have a couple of beginner questions:
I just copied my (small, family site) asp.net/MSSQL website, currently on a hosting provider, to LightSail.

My LightSail site is running on Win2019 server/RDS with it's own external IP address. Everything is good here.

Now, my site name is registered with GoDaddy. I don't want/can't move my domain registration to AWS.
Once I associate my LightSail Ip address with my domain name,

  1. will I be able to use AWS Certificate Manager to create SSL certificate?
  2. will I be able to use CloudFront in this setup?
  3. What will happen with my email? The one that I have currently at hosting provider will be gone... so, what do I do here?

Not sure about that ... my recommendation would be to use LetsEncrypt for SSL certificates.

I think so. IIRC, cloudfront just requires that you associate a CNAME with your domain.

You'll have to setup new email. Personally, I use google apps, but there are a number of good providers.
