    1. How to get a free Windows VPS for 1 year

    Some of you might know but most of you probably don’t, Amazon offers everybody that wants to test their services a free VPS for a year. However, it may be a bit of a challenge to navigate through their signup pages so here’s a short walk through on how to do it swiftly and with ease.

    What you need to prepare:

    • a credit card, it will not be billed as the VPS is free but they require you to provide one
    • a telephone number – they will call to verify your identity (call is automated not human)
    • 5-15 minutes of your time depending on how fast you are in filling up forms and following instructions.

    What’s in it for you:

    • 1Gb of RAM
    • 30Gb Hdd (you’ll have around 11Gb free after the OS is installed)
    • 1 virtual processor at 2.49Ghz
    • OS: Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard.
    • 1GB monthly free traffic (if you go over they will charge you $0.12 per 1Gb which is almost free as well)

    As you can see, it’s not much but it’s pretty decent and what’s important is that it’s free for a year and it will suffice for any day-to-day post scheduling.

    If you want to go ahead and get your own server like the one above, just go over to Amazon at: http://aws.amazon.com/free/. You will see this server being referred to as AWS account (it means Amazon Web Services account).

    There would be more information on their page about the free plan, you can go ahead and read that or if you opt to simply go on your way and continue, just click the yellow “Create a Free Account” button as seen below:Next, you will be taken to the signup page for the AWS service, you can proceed and create a new account by selecting “I am a new user” and entering your email like this:After filling out the required information, click the yellow “Sign in using our secure server” button and you will be taken to another form to complete the signup process.Go ahead and fill out these too with your name, email as before and select a new password. After you’re done click the “Create account” button and you will be redirected to a page that will ask for your details (the AWS console signup page; refer to image below). You will need to complete this form in order to proceed to the next step. You can choose between a Company or a Personal account, I went for a Personal one.Fill everything out accurately, be sure to provide your real name and address as you will also have to enter your credit card information later and if they don’t match, you might get denied and all your previous efforts would amount to nothing. Hence, use your Full Name, company (if any), select your country, enter address, city, state, postal code, phone number, the security code and finally tick the AWS customer agreement check box. When you are all set, click the Create Account and Continue button. You will then be redirected to the Payment Information page where you need to enter your credit card details:Type in your credit card number and select the expiration date. Enter your name as before, either leave the address that you already entered (as I did, just blurred it though) or select a new one, then press “Continue”. You will be redirected to the Identity verification step:
    In this part of the signup process, they will verify that you are who you say you are, so you will get an automated call from Amazon and you will need to enter the provided PIN number in order to proceed. Make sure again that you entered your phone number correctly and have your telephone close by before you click the “Call me now” yellow button.You should immediately receive a call from Amazon, they will also display a PIN number on your computer screen you will need to enter that PIN number on your telephone keypad or just say it audibly one digit at a time. If it was successful, you will receive a message on your screen stating that your identity verification is complete:Now just click the “Continue to select your Support Plan” button. You will need to select the support plan for your VPS:
    This one should be quite simple, if Basic (Free) is already selected leave it as it is. If something else is selected, then choose Basic (Free) then click the ‘Continue’ button and you finally have your Amazon Web Services account:Cheers!  You now have an AWS account.  And the next thing you need to do is set up your Windows VPS. To do that, just click on the yellow “Sign in to the Console”At this point, you might be prompted to re-enter your AWS password, the one you provided in the signup process. Just go on and enter the required information and re-login to the AWS management console. Don’t mind all the other services Amazon is providing here; there are a lot of them and someone that is new to this would easily get confused. The management console would look something like this:Again, pay no attention to the other items, just focus and click on “EC2 – Virtual Servers in the Cloud” (where the red arrow points to).  You will then be taken to another screen that yet again presents overwhelming information; Amazon sure is having fun with all these 🙂 Just click the blue “Launch Instance” button and you will be redirected to a page where you will need to choose what operating system to install on your VPS:Here, you will see several choices of operating systems and if you are doing this in order to use it with other software at this point you can choose either Linux or Windows. However, for the sole purpose of using the VPS for JARVEE, you need to select “Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Base”. To know more about Jarvee pricing visit Apps4rent.
