Why are periods not allowed for s3 buckets


How can I add a storage bucket on S3 that has a period in the bucket name? The UI blocks the request to set up the folder claiming that periods aren’t allowed - they are.



Hi @michael1,
Apologies for the confusion here. Amazon does allow periods in S3 buckets, but then it breaks the certificate validation. Please take a look at this post for more detail:


Ah, that’s interesting. I’ve often wondered why I see certificate errors when navigating buckets that I’m using for websites - never put two and two together.

I think that, at this point in my project, I can adapt to _'s.

Perhaps the error message could bit a little more detailed but other than that, close this one and thanks.
