In order for an S3 bucket to be compatible with CloudFront, it must conform to DNS requirements. Therefore, you may need to create a new S3 bucket.  Follow the naming convention guidelines below to create a valid S3 bucket for CloudFront.

  • Bucket names should not include underscores (Invalid Example: right_scale)
  • Bucket names should not include capital letters (Invalid Example: RightScale)
  • Bucket names should be between 3 to 63 characters long
  • Bucket names should not end with a dash (Invalid Example: rightscale-)
  • Bucket names should not contain dashes next to periods. (Invalid Example: right-.scale)
