Can I use my own private S3 bucket or own storage?

In the Cloudimage Admin panel, you can set up Storage aliases for your own private S3 storage.

You must select Connect External Storage: from the menu Settings -> Storage.


Then select Own HTTP-Based Storage:


You must enter in the corresponding values - Image folder base path and Cloudimage Alias - in the Pop up screen.


If your S3 bucket is located on address then:

      • Image folder base path = 
      • Cloudimage alias - you may choose whatever name you want, but do not forget to prefix and suffix it with double underscores = __myalias__

You can also add authentication if your storage system requires it.

Using the "+" button, you can create more Storage aliases.


After completion of this step, press Save. The configuration takes 1-2 minutes to be deployed to our servers.

Now, if the original image is located on ,
You can use the following Cloudimage URL: 


In case that the Cloudimage Domain Whitelisting is enabled, please do not forget that the new Storage alias needs to be whitelisted too (section MANAGE -> page Image Settings -> tab DOMAINS):



Please keep in mind that all aliases for your account must be unique; aliases created in the Storage area cannot be used in the alias section.

Please contact us via the Cloudimage admin or, if you still don't have an account with us, please use this contact form if you have any queries or concerns with the Storage alias.
