Last Updated : 13 Apr, 2023

Amazon web services is a cloud service platform that provides on-demand computational services, databases, storage space, and many more services. AWS allows its user to choose products from its wide variety of services and use them on-demand with no upfront payment for most of the services. Individually an AWS service may lack some functionality but, given the right AWS architecture, AWS services can be easily integrated to make highly complex and robust applications. 

In this article, we will look into the process of creating & setting up an AWS Free Tier Account. Amazon is providing a number of various services in this AWS Free Tier account with some restrictions so that users can gain practical experience and a deeper understanding of AWS Cloud services. The AWS Free Tier’s main objective is to give users a year(12 months) of free access to AWS Cloud Services so they may get experience in how to use the services. There is a limit on how much we may utilize of each service included in the AWS Free Tier account before being charged.

Note: You’re not charged for any AWS services that you sign up for unless you’re exceeding the free Tier limit. (Turn off or Delete the services once you have done with your practice)

Set Up A AWS Free Tier Account

Step 1: First Open your web browser and search for AWS Login Console and click on the first link. As shown in the picture below

After clicking on “Verify Email Address,” you will receive a verification code at the address you provided. Next, you must create a password for this account. Finally, click “Continue” to move on to the next stage. The pictures below show every step of the process.

Step 6: We must provide the credit/debit card information in this step. There is no reason to panic at this time. AWS won’t deduct any amount unless you pay it on your own. AWS may temporarily keep your identification that they will charge you only  2 Indian rupees.

Step 7: We have to verify our phone number in this phase. As seen in the image below, select “TEXT or Voice call” as the method for receiving your verification number, then complete the captcha by clicking on “Send SMS.”You will be sent to a screen where you must confirm the verification code you have received and click continue to proceed to the following stage.

  • Can access personal health dashboard 
  • It is free of cost
