AWS EC2 VM — Step 2 — Create a VPC Subnet

Continuing our “property developer” scenario, the next stages will be to mark out the boundaries (subnet) of where you plan to build your house (EC2 instance) and lay the foundations.

From The VPC Dashboard, choose Subnets, then click Create Subnet.


From the dropdown menu, select the VPC (plot of land) when you want your subnet (house boundaries and foundations) to reside.

And then name and choose your subnet CIDR block, and click Create Subnet.

You have now completed the second stage, and successfully marked out the boundaries (subnet) and laid the foundations of where you plan to build your house (EC2 instance).

The next stage will be to complete the utility work, making way (routes) for the gutters, electrics, gas, plumbing etc.
