You can set your bucket to host a static website and access this static website through the bucket domain name.

  • If the default webpage is blank, static website hosting is disabled.
  • If static website hosting is enabled, we recommend that you use CNAME to bind your domain name.
  • If you directly access the static website root domain or any URL ending with “/“ under this domain, the default homepage is returned.
Note When you use an OSS endpoint in Mainland China regions or the Hongkong region to access a web file through the Internet , the Content-Disposition: 'attachment=filename;' is automatically added to the Response Header, and the web file is downloaded as an attachment. If you access OSS with a user domain, the Content-Disposition: 'attachment=filename;' will not be added to the Response Header. For more information about using the user domain to access OSS, see Bind a custom domain name.

For more information, see Static Website Hosting.
