It can be realized that AWS brought many developments in Chinese markets, millions of customers around the globe continue to benefit from AWS services to boost and strengthen their businesses on a very large scale. It has the largest and most energetic community with millions of active customers in different geographical areas. Whether you own a growing business or large enterprise, you can use AWS services through a valid account.
After this short introduction, let’s touch the 4 key points of the process for creating the AWS account with the China region.
1. Create an AWS account in the China region
Likewise, AWS China has made the process of account creation fairly easy and straightforward to the customers. The customers who wish to expand and successfully utilize the AWS services within China are required to have a legal account. In addition, AWS China has brought a lot of flexibility in providing the best services within China. AWS has collaborated with local partners (Sinnet and NWCD) by way of delivering cloud services because AWS provides its best and advanced cloud services and guidance to the local partners in China as they need proper licenses to operate the cloud. Customers need to decide whether they want to get a full access account or just internal access account because only the account holder can get proper access to AWS China (Beijing and Ningxia) region. An account created for AWS global regions cannot be accessible for AWS China regions. Similarly, accounts created for both regions within China cannot work for AWS global services. So in this regard customers who want to use both regions in China are required to make separate account credentials to get the services.
2. Identity verification
According to Chinese law and regulation, identity verification is mandatory before you get access to AWS China regions. That’s why all the companies, startups, and large enterprises who wish to join AWS China, are essential to provide a valid Chinese business license issued by the Bureau of Industry and Commerce. In the account registration process for AWS China Beijing and Ningxia regions, you need to provide the required information about the company, the owner, company name, job title, job role, contact information, and a valid email address. This is an authentic and legal process to build businesses and run applications in the cloud.
3. ICP license
In mainland China, the ICP (Internet Content Provider) process is mandatory to get a full access account. Therefore, customers are required to have either an ICP recordal or an ICP license to serve the content and to get internet services. In short, an ICP license is a permit or registration number issued by the state that allows you to host a website on a server. Additionally, this process is compulsory for publishing content that the customer who wishes to make the published content publically available through AWS China services. On the other hand, the customers who don’t want to publish content publically are not required to complete the ICP process.
4. IAM user administrator
In addition, to use the AWS services in mainland China, customers must have gone through this process. The AWS management walks you through the signing up process where you are supposed to provide some of the basic information such as the account holder name, company name, and customers need to answer some of the descriptive questions. Besides, you are required to give an authentic email address to receive your AWS China account credentials such as account ID, access key ID, and secret access key. Along with the sign-up process, customers need to create an IAM (Identity Access Management) user administrator. This actually requires to manage the account as it has complete access to manage the customers’ accounts. Customers will be able to use AWS China services only if they get credentials provided by the IAM user administrator. This actually allows the customers to use AWS China services through their account ID.
In short, AWS China provides easy, fast, and secure services to all businesses of all sizes at incredibly affordable processes. There are many reasons that gave confidence to the customers in exploring it as a sourcing platform with the easiest and shortest process to create AWS accounts within the China region.
