Creating a Bucket

This section describes how to create a bucket in OBS Console. A bucket is a container used to store objects on OBS. Before you store data onto OBS, you need to create buckets.


A user can create a maximum of 100 buckets on OBS.


  1. Log in to OBS Console.
  2. In the upper right corner, click Create Bucket. The following dialog box is displayed, as shown in Figure 1.

  3. Set the Region and Storage Class, and then enter a name for the bucket.

    • Once you create a bucket, you cannot change the name of it. Make sure the bucket name you set is appropriate.
    • When a URL is used to access a bucket, the bucket name will become a part of the URL. According to DNS standards, URLs do not support uppercase letters and cannot be used to access a bucket whose name contains uppercase letters. Therefore, a bucket name can contain only lowercase letters, digits, hyphens (-), and periods (.). For example, if you attempt to access bucket MyBucket using the URL, bucket mybucket will be accessed instead, causing an access error.

  4. Click Create Bucket.
