What is the Hostname / Servername for Amazon AWS Glacier?

S3 is: s3.amazonaws.com I can find the ARN (Amazon Resource Name) in my console, but cannot find a hostname or reference to it (in the context of Glacier) in the AWS docs.

You didn't look hard enough :)


The hostname value must be of the form "glacier.region.amazonaws.com", where region is replaced with a region designation such as us-east-1.

See the documentation :)
