Creating an AWS Account

To access any web service AWS offers, you must first create an AWS account at An AWS account is simply an account that is enabled to use AWS products; you can use an existing account login and password when creating the AWS account.
If you have a personal account, you might want to have a separate account just for your AWS activity. You could provide a new e-mail address not already in the system, or provide an e-mail address for an existing account you have but use a different password. You can have multiple 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
