Spaces is an S3-compatible object storage service that lets you store and serve large amounts of data. Each Space is a bucket for you to store and serve files. The free, built-in Spaces CDN minimizes page load times, improves performance, and reduces bandwidth and infrastructure costs.
DigitalOcean Spaces allows you to store and serve large amounts of data. Each Spaces bucket you create within an account has its own URL and can be used as a logical unit for segmenting content.
The Spaces URL naming pattern is
spacename is the name of your Space and
region is the region your Space is in.
Creating your first bucket automatically starts your Spaces subscription. Your subscription automatically ends when you destroy all of your buckets.
You can create a bucket at any time from the Create menu by selecting Spaces. This will take you to the Create a Spaces Bucket page.
From here, you need to:
Choose a datacenter region. The datacenter region you choose will also become part of a bucket’s endpoint URL. See regional availability for Spaces for more information on the available options.
Optionally, enable the Spaces CDN (Content Delivery Network). If you click Enable CDN, you can customize the Edge Cache TTL, which is the amount of time the edge servers will cache your content.
Choose to restrict file listing or enable file listing. The visibility of a bucket’s file listing has no effect on the visibility of the files themselves. You can change the file listing visibility at any time after creation.
Choose a unique name for your bucket. The name of the bucket makes up part of its endpoint URL and cannot be changed once it is created. Names must:
Select a project to add the bucket to.
After choosing your settings, click Create a Spaces Bucket. This will take you to the newly-created bucket’s Files tab, which displays the files and folders in its root.
After creation, the Settings page of a bucket displays its Endpoint value, which is used to configure third-party clients. The Index page displays its name, size, and creation date.
