AWS EC2 VM — Step 1 — Create a VPC

Here’s the scenario. You are a property developer who decides to build a new house (EC2 Instance). The first step is to buy a plot of land on which to build your house. In this case, your “plot of land” is your Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).

In the search bar at the top of the screen search for and select VPC.

Click on Your VPCs.

Then click Create VPC.

Name your VPC and assign it a CIDR (Classless Inter-Domain Routing) block. Then click Create VPC.

You have now successfully completed the first stage, and successfully purchased a “plot of land”.

The next stages will be to mark out the boundaries (subnet) and lay the foundations of where you plan to build your house (EC2 Instance).
