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 standard AWS CloudFormation endpoints are:
|Asia Pacific (Singapore) Region||cloudformation.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com|
|Asia Pacific (Sydney) Region||cloudformation.ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com|
|Asia Pacific (Tokyo) Region||cloudformation.ap-northeast-1.amazonaws.com|
|China (Beijing) Region||cloudformation.cn-north-1.amazonaws.com|
|EU (Frankfurt) Region||cloudformation.eu-central-1.amazonaws.com|
|EU (Ireland) Region||cloudformation.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com|
|South America (Sao Paulo) Region||cloudformation.sa-east-1.amazonaws.com|
|US East (Northern Virginia) Region||cloudformation.us-east-1.amazonaws.com|
|US West (Northern California) Region||cloudformation.us-west-1.amazonaws.com|
|US West (Oregon) Region||cloudformation.us-west-2.amazonaws.com|
NoteAll AWS CloudFormation endpoints use the HTTPS protocol for access.
