Regions and Endpoints

Overview

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. For example, https://dynamodb.us-west-2.amazonaws.com is an entry point for the Amazon DynamoDB service.

Some services, such as IAM, do not support regions; their endpoints therefore do not include a region. A few services, such as Amazon EC2, let you specify an endpoint that does not include a specific region, for example, https://ec2.amazonaws.com. In that case, AWS routes the endpoint to us-east-1.

If a service supports regions, the resources in each region are independent. For example, if you create an Amazon EC2 instance or an Amazon SQS queue in one region, the instance or queue is independent from instances or queues in another region.

For information about which regions are supported, see the specific region information for your product. For information about the AWS products and endpoints available in the AWS GovCloud (US) Region, go to AWS GovCloud (US) Endpoints in the AWS GovCloud (US) User Guide. For your convenience, the following tables provide information about the region, endpoint, and protocol(s) for each AWS product.

Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3)

The following table provides a list of region-specific endpoints that Amazon S3 supports. When sending requests to these endpoints using the REST API, you can use the virtual-hosted style and path-style methods. For more information, go to Virtual Hosting of Buckets.

Region nameRegionEndpointLocation constraintProtocol
US Standard *us-east-1

You can use one of the following two endpoints:

  • s3.amazonaws.com (Northern Virginia or Pacific Northwest)

  • s3-external-1.amazonaws.com (Northern Virginia only)

South America (Sao Paulo) Regionsa-east-1s3-sa-east-1.amazonaws.comsa-east-1HTTP and HTTPS

* For the US Standard Region, the endpoints work as follows:

  • s3.amazonaws.com endpoint — Amazon S3 automatically routes requests to facilities in Northern Virginia or the Pacific Northwest using network maps.

  • s3-external-1.amazonaws.com endpoint — Amazon S3 routes requests to a facility in Northern Virginia. This is especially useful in a scenario where you require low-latency access to your Amazon S3 data from Amazon EC2 in the Northern Virginia Region.

Important

If you use a region other than the US Standard endpoint to create a bucket, you must set the LocationConstraint bucket parameter to the same region. Both the AWS SDK for Java and AWS SDK for .NET use an enumeration for setting location constraints (Region for Java, S3Region for .NET). For more information, go to Buckets and Regions in the Amazon Simple Storage Service Developer Guide.

Amazon Simple Storage Service Website Endpoints

When you configure your bucket as a website, the website is available using the following region-specific website endpoints. Note that the website endpoints are different than the REST API endpoints listed in the preceding table. For more information about hosting websites on Amazon S3, go to Hosting Websites on Amazon S3 in the Amazon Simple Storage Service Developer Guide. You need the hosted zone IDs when using the Amazon Route 53 API to add an alias record to your hosted zone.
