AWS services or capabilities described in AWS Documentation may vary by region/location. Click Getting Started with Amazon AWS to see specific differences applicable to the China (Beijing) Region.

Container for the parameters to the CreateVpc operation. Creates a VPC with the specified IPv4 CIDR block. The smallest VPC you can create uses a /28 netmask (16 IPv4 addresses), and the largest uses a /16 netmask (65,536 IPv4 addresses). For more information about how large to make your VPC, see Your VPC and subnets in the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud User Guide.

You can optionally request an IPv6 CIDR block for the VPC. You can request an Amazon-provided IPv6 CIDR block from Amazon's pool of IPv6 addresses, or an IPv6 CIDR block from an IPv6 address pool that you provisioned through bring your own IP addresses (BYOIP).

By default, each instance you launch in the VPC has the default DHCP options, which include only a default DNS server that we provide (AmazonProvidedDNS). For more information, see DHCP options sets in the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud User Guide.

You can specify the instance tenancy value for the VPC when you create it. You can't change this value for the VPC after you create it. For more information, see Dedicated Instances in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.

Public Method CreateVpcRequest(string)

Instantiates CreateVpcRequest with the parameterized properties


Public Property AmazonProvidedIpv6CidrBlock System.Boolean

Public Property CidrBlock System.String

Gets and sets the property CidrBlock.

The IPv4 network range for the VPC, in CIDR notation. For example, We modify the specified CIDR block to its canonical form; for example, if you specify, we modify it to

Public Property InstanceTenancy Amazon.EC2.Tenancy

Gets and sets the property InstanceTenancy.

The tenancy options for instances launched into the VPC. For default, instances are launched with shared tenancy by default. You can launch instances with any tenancy into a shared tenancy VPC. For dedicated, instances are launched as dedicated tenancy instances by default. You can only launch instances with a tenancy of dedicated or host into a dedicated tenancy VPC.

Important: The host value cannot be used with this parameter. Use the default or dedicated values only.

Default: default

Public Property Ipv6CidrBlock System.String

Gets and sets the property Ipv6CidrBlock.

The IPv6 CIDR block from the IPv6 address pool. You must also specify Ipv6Pool in the request.

To let Amazon choose the IPv6 CIDR block for you, omit this parameter.

Public Property Ipv6CidrBlockNetworkBorderGroup System.String

Gets and sets the property Ipv6CidrBlockNetworkBorderGroup.

The name of the location from which we advertise the IPV6 CIDR block. Use this parameter to limit the address to this location.

You must set AmazonProvidedIpv6CidrBlock to true to use this parameter.

Public Property Ipv6Pool System.String

Gets and sets the property Ipv6Pool.

The ID of an IPv6 address pool from which to allocate the IPv6 CIDR block.

Public Property TagSpecifications System.Collections.Generic.List<Amazon.EC2.Model.TagSpecification>

Gets and sets the property TagSpecifications.

The tags to assign to the VPC.


This example creates a VPC with the specified CIDR block.

To create a VPC

var client = new AmazonEC2Client();
var response = client.CreateVpc(new CreateVpcRequest 
    CidrBlock = ""

Vpc vpc = response.Vpc;
