Sign up for an Amazon account

Your Amazon account gives you access to all services, but you are charged only for the resources that you use.

If you do not have an Amazon Web Services account, use the following procedure to create one.

To sign up for Amazon Web Services
  1. Open and choose Sign Up.

  2. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Your root account credentials identify you to services in Amazon and grant you unlimited use of your Amazon resources, such as your Amazon WorkSpaces. To allow other users to manage Amazon Directory Service resources without sharing your security credentials, use Amazon Identity and Access Management (IAM). We recommend that everyone work as an IAM user, even the account owner. You should create an IAM user for yourself, give that IAM user administrative privileges, and use it for all your work.
