Parking a domain on S3

You might want to “park” a domain to notify people that they’re no longer in use or whatever. Since we’re using Terraform you can update a ton of parked domains at the same time. Which is nice when business decides to rebrand everything. Like they do.

Notice that we’re using a bucket policy and not ACLs to make the contents of the bucket public. This gives us more fine grained control over access to the bucket, and while it doesn’t really matter in this case, it’s a good habit to get into.
