Create an Amazon account - Amazon SDK for .NET
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.

Create an Amazon account

To use the Amazon SDK for .NET to access Amazon services, you need an Amazon account and Amazon credentials.

  1. Create an account.

    To create an Amazon account, see How do I create and activate a new Amazon Web Services account?

  2. Create an administrative user.

    Avoid using your root user account (the initial account you create) to access the management console and services. Instead, create an administrative user account, as explained in Creating your first IAM admin user and group.

    After you create the administrative user account and record the login details, sign out of your root user account and sign back in using the administrative account.

If you need to close your Amazon account, see Closing an account.
