Bucket Configuration Options

When creating buckets, you can take advantage of additional Amazon S3 features by attaching the <CreateBucketConfiguration> XML body to a PUT Bucket request. Currently, you can select a location constraint. For more information, see Buckets and Regions.

Buckets created with <CreateBucketConfiguration> are subject to additional restrictions:

  • You cannot use a path-style request to a bucket created with <CreateBucketConfiguration>; you must use a virtual hosted–style request. For more information, see Virtual Hosting of Buckets.

  • You must follow additional bucket naming restrictions. For more information, see Bucket Restrictions and Limitations.
