AWS - Create Account

If you have an AWS account, you can proceed to create a new user or add permissions to an existing user. This guide is designed for beginners, providing step-by-step instructions. It's important to note that you need an AWS account to link it with your DeployPRO account.

  1. Access the AWS Website: Navigate to the official AWS homepage.
  2. Click the Create an AWS Account button located in the top-right corner of the AWS homepage to commence the account registration process.
  3. Provide your valid email address in the designated field, serving as the unique username for your AWS account.
  4. For enhanced security, AWS may necessitate a verification code delivered to your designated email address, validating your account ownership.
  5. Choose a robust and secure password, consisting of alphanumeric characters and special symbols, to safeguard your AWS account.
  6. Complete essential personal and contact details, including your full name, postal address, and phone number, as part of the AWS account registration procedure.
  7. Optionally, submit valid payment particulars, such as credit card details, to enable access to specific AWS services.
    • AWS will exclusively charge you for the actual resources and services you utilize, allowing you to configure billing alerts and limits to manage expenditures effectively.
  8. Carefully review the terms and conditions, along with the data processing agreement, and consent to the stated terms by selecting Create Account and Continue.
  9. Upon completing the registration process, AWS will conduct a brief review of your submitted information.
    • Once account verification is completed, you will receive an email confirmation, confirming the activation of your AWS account.


The AWS Root User represents the foundational administrative account within your AWS account, offering unparalleled control over all resources and services. Instead, employing IAM users with tailored permissions enhances security and aligns with the principle of least privilege. In summary, the root user possesses wide-ranging, unrestricted access to your entire AWS account, making it a high-security risk if not used carefully.

  1. Open your web browser and go to the AWS Management Console. Click the Sign In to the Console button and enter your AWS account credentials.
  2. After signing in, look for your account name in the top-right corner of the console. Click on it. From the drop-down menu, choose Security Credentials.
  3. In the Security Credentials page, scroll down to the Access keys section.
  4. To generate a new access key for the root user, click the Create Access Key button.
  5. Tick the box to confirm you understand the above recommendation to proceed.
  6. Once the access key is created, a pop-up window will appear displaying the access key ID and secret access key.

These are sensitive credentials⚠️, so make sure to copy and save them in a secure location or you can download it as a CSV file by clicking the "Download .csv file" button.

IAM User

IAM allows you to securely control access to specific AWS services and resources in your AWS account. For more information about AWS Account and Access Keys, visit
