Creating a Bucket

This section describes how to create a bucket in OBS Console. On OBS, buckets are containers where objects are stored. 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 of the page, Click Create Bucket. A dialog box is displayed, as shown in Figure 1.

  3. Set 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 that 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 the DNS rule, 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.
