Buckets

Once you have connected to E-Prepared, you need to create one or more so-called buckets to upload your files to. The name you give your bucket becomes a subdomain. For example, a bucket named rachel-laptop becomes accessible as rachel-laptop.s3.e-prepared.com. Any folders you create get appended to the end of the url, eg. rachel-laptop.s3.e-prepared.com/pictures/.

Because of this subdomain convention, please observe the following naming conventions:
