When you create a bucket, you give it a name. HCP derives the hostname for the bucket from this name. The hostname is used in URLs for access to the bucket.

In English, the name you specify for a bucket must be from three through 63 characters long and can contain only alphanumeric characters and hyphens (-) but cannot start or end with a hyphen. In other languages, because the derived hostname cannot be more than 63 characters long, the name you specify may be limited to fewer than 63 characters.

Bucket names cannot contain white space or special characters other than hyphens.

Bucket names are not case sensitive. However, if you will be accessing a bucket through an interface that does not automatically convert URLs to all lowercase, you should use lowercase for all letters in the bucket name.

Bucket names cannot start with xn-- (that is, the characters x and n followed by two hyphens).

The name you give a bucket must be unique for the tenant for which you create the bucket. Different tenants can have buckets with the same name.

You can reuse bucket names that are not currently in use. So, for example, if you delete a bucket, you can give a new bucket the same name as the deleted bucket had.

Tenant administrators can change the name of a bucket any time after you create the bucket. When the name of a bucket changes, the URL for the bucket may change as well.
