I have a S3 bucket called "abcd" that I would like to map to a subdomain, "", using a CNAME.

Unfortunately I can't move files from the original "abcd" bucket to a new "" bucket, because it will break an existing iOs application.

My question is: is it possible to create an "" bucket and tell S3 that this new bucket is simply an alias to the original "abcd" bucket?

It's not possible with S3 directly. You can only use 1 subdomain with an S3 bucket.Also alias for bucket also not possible.
