Create a Free VPS On Amazon Web Services
As an incentive to use their service, Amazon Web Services offers new users a “free tier” of service that provides a VPS “microinstance” at no cost for one year.
The free tier of service is fairly flexible. Amazon AWS provides enough free hours to run the microinstance twentyfour hours a day for a year but, if a user needs more services, he or she may create multiple micro instances and run them concurrently, which multiplies the rate the user consumes hours. For example, one could run two microinstances concurrently every day for six months; or twelve for one month. In this guide, we’ll show how to set up the free server, and how to connect to it using SSH.
