Create an AWS Account

Note: If you already have an AWS account, you can skip this section. Just sign in to your console.

  1. Open and then choose ‘Create an AWS Account’

    1. Follow the online instructions. Do not worry about the IAM role, we will do that later.
    2. You will need a Valid Credit Card to set up your account (note the AWS Free Tier will suffice however. You can find out more about the free tier here.)
    3. Part of the sign-up procedure involves receiving a phone call and entering a PIN using the phone keypad.
  2. Sign in to the AWS Console

  3. It can sometimes take a couple minutes for your new AWS account to go live. You will receive an e-mail when your account is active.
