Why or when to use Amazon S3 for 360 views hosting

If you do not have your own server space, you need to upload the 360 view “somewhere” so you can use it in any other website or share a link using email or social networks.

This is usually the case if you use services like Wix or Shopify to create and manage your websites. You can read a review on Wix, Shopify and other cloud-based website builders here: https://hostingfacts.com/website-builders/
