Your AWS Account

To access any web services offered by AWS, 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.

Alternatively, you can create a new AWS-enabled account using a new login and password. The email address you provide as the account login must be valid. You must provide a credit card or other payment method to cover the charges for any AWS products you use.

From your AWS account you can view your AWS account activity and view usage reports.
