There are certain rules you must follow while naming your bucket and again the most important of all is that your bucket name should be unique.

The other rules are your bucket name should start with a lowercase letter.

@Namitha, thank you it worked fine. Thank you for the rules, I will keep this in mind from the next time.

Your bucket name cannot contain capital letters. You could try one of these instead:

niteshdemo

nitesh-demo
