How to Create and Use S3 Bucket in Amazon Web-Service



Amazon S3 has a simple web services interface that you can use to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. It gives any developer access to the same highly scalable, reliable, fast, inexpensive data storage infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of web sites.


In S3, there’s no initial charges, zero setup cost. You only pay for what you utilize. It is utmost suitable for webmasters and bloggers.


Step 1 - Go to Service Section, here we can see all Amazon products and select Storage & Content Delivery => S3.

Step 2 - In the next window, we need to create new bucket click on "Create Bucket".

Enter the bucket name and select nearest location for your region then click on "Create".

Step 3 - After creating S3 Bucket, select your bucket and go to Properties. Here, we can see different options for the bucket configuration.

Step 4 - Select the newly created bucket, we can see the bucket is empty.

Step 5 - Now we need to upload the file by clicking on "Upload" and we can also create new folder inside the bucket.

Another Option : Using Amazon S3 with Firefox S3Fox. S3Fox is a Firefox plugin, so if you don’t have a Firefox browser installed in your machine, you’ll need to get one. Install S3Fox plugin, have your Access Key ID and Secret Access Key ready, let’s get started.

In this section, we need an Access Key. This key will get from Security Credential / IAM Section". Create new key for S3 Bucket and Add in this section.

Step 6 - Now check the bucket, we can see that the uploading is successfully completed.

Step 7 - To delete the bucket, go through the following steps.

Before deleting the bucket, check whether there is any files lying inside the bucket. If so, first delete all the files, then only we can delete the bucket.

That's it...
