AWS CloudFormation Endpoints

To reduce data latency in your applications, most Amazon Web Services products allow you to select a regional endpoint to make your requests. An endpoint is a URL that is the entry point for a web service.

The following table lists the standard AWS CloudFormation endpoints:

Region NameEndpoint
Asia Pacific (Singapore)
Asia Pacific (Sydney)
Asia Pacific (Tokyo)
China (Beijing)
EU (Frankfurt)
EU (Ireland)
South America (Sao Paulo)
US East (N. Virginia)
US West (N. California)
US West (Oregon)


All AWS CloudFormation endpoints use the HTTPS protocol for access.

For more information about regions and endpoints for AWS CloudFormation and other services, go to Regions and Endpoints in the Amazon Web Services General Reference.
