Creating an AWS Account

Source: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonSimpleDB/latest/DeveloperGuide/AboutAWSAccounts.html
To access any web service AWS offers, you must first create an AWS account at http://aws.amazon.com. An AWS account is simply an Amazon.com account that is enabled to use AWS products; you can use an existing Amazon.com account login and password when creating the AWS account.
Important
If you have a personal Amazon.com account, you might want to have a separate Amazon.com account just for your AWS activity. You could provide a new e-mail address not already in the Amazon.com system, or provide an e-mail address for an existing Amazon.com account you have but use a different password. You can have multiple Amazon.com accounts that use the same e-mail address, but different passwords.
From your AWS account you can view your AWS account activity, view usage reports, and manage your AWS Security Credentials.
To set up a new account

  1. Go to http://aws.amazon.com, and then click Sign Up.
  2. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Part of the sign-up procedure involves receiving a phone call and entering a PIN using the phone keypad.
