How to create an AWS account for free step by step

Hello everyone

Welcome to CloudAffaire and this is Debjeet.

This is my first blog post in cloudaffaire.com and I welcome you to this platform of knowledge sharing.

The entire IT industry is currently going through a transition and moving towards the future that is the cloud. And it’s time to update your existing skill set and get accustomed with at least one cloud technology for your own future. AWS or Amazon Web Services is the leading cloud service provider in the market with 35% market share. Hence we are starting the series with AWS. Later we will also start blogging about Azure and Google.

Before you start using AWS you need to create one account with AWS and today we will learn how to create an AWS account for free step by step. AWS offers a free account with limitations for one year. In order to create the account, we need one valid mail account, phone number, and credit card.

Note: Rupees 2 will be deducted from the credit card for verification which is refundable

Note: Sometimes you may not be able to login to your AWS console just after the account creation, please wait for 24 hours and then try to log in again. If you are still not able to login to your console then you have to raise one support request to AWS. Same goes for payment if you already made the payment but still not able to login to your console then raise one support request.

Thanks for your time and hope by now you can create your own AWS account.

Next, we will create our 1st AWS EC2 instance (server) in AWS cloud.
