You should have a clear understanding of the type of scenario you intend for your VPC. The most common scenarios for using a VPC are documented at Scenarios for Using Amazon VPC. Each of these scenarios have a link to a detailed explanation of the scenario and at the end of the section is a link called Implementing the Scenario which gives you instructions on how to create a VPC for that scenario. Follow these instructions to create a VPC.
Once you have created your VPC, you need to create one subnet in the VPC in at least two Availability Zones. You will use these subnets when you create a DB subnet group.
If you want your DB instance in the VPC to be publicly accessible, you must update the DNS information for the VPC by enabling the VPC attributes DNS hostnames and DNS resolution. For information about updating the DNS information for a VPC instance, see Updating DNS Support for Your VPC. For more information on Amazon VPC, see the Amazon VPC documentation for detailed instructions on creating a VPC.
