    Greetings...

    When I create my backup configuration on cPanel and get to the "Bucket" field for the "Destination for Amazon S3™" settings, I get the following warning after entering my bucket name...

    X A bucket name cannot include a period.

    However... the naming conventions for Amazon S3 state...

    "The bucket name can be between 3 and 63 characters long, and can contain only lower-case characters, numbers, periods, and dashes."

    "They even provide examples such as "business-name.backups

    Is this an error in cPanel's programming, or is this a conflict in that the Backup configuration programming in cPanel will not allow periods in that field?

    I can work with either of course, I am just wondering if the conflict is intentional or an error.

    Thanks.

    Hello :)

    Periods are disallowed in bucket names when configuring backups in Web Host Manager. This is by design in order to prevent issues such as SSL validation failures.

    Thank you.
