Amazon S3 and .htaccess

I have a site (Made in iWeb) that I am hosting on Amazon S3. I am trying to get

www.domain.com/Apps/Physics.html
to turn into
www.domain.com/Apps/Physics
.

I am trying to accomplish this with an .htaccess file. The file is stored in the root of the bucket (where the index.html file is). Here's the problem: It doesn't work. Still can't use
www.domain.com/Apps/Physics
.

I have a GoDaddy domain, hosted on the S3 server. Does this help?

Answer

S3 is a content server and not a web server. You may want to try renting a small Amazon EC2 instance with Apache to do what you want.
