2017/07/27 - Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud - 1 new api methods

Changes  The CreateDefaultVPC API enables you to create a new default VPC . You no longer need to contact AWS support, if your default VPC has been deleted.

CreateDefaultVpc (new) Link ΒΆ

Creates a default VPC with a size /16 IPv4 CIDR block and a default subnet in each Availability Zone. For more information about the components of a default VPC, see Default VPC and Default Subnets in the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud User Guide . You cannot specify the components of the default VPC yourself.

You can create a default VPC if you deleted your previous default VPC. You cannot have more than one default VPC per region.

If your account supports EC2-Classic, you cannot use this action to create a default VPC in a region that supports EC2-Classic. If you want a default VPC in a region that supports EC2-Classic, see "I really want a default VPC for my existing EC2 account. Is that possible?" in the Default VPCs FAQ .
