Before you set up your Google Cloud Account you will need:
- A Google Account, which will be the owner of the account.
- A credit card. Google gives you a $300 credit you can use for the first year.
Go to https://cloud.google.com and press the “Get Started For Free” button in the upper right corner.
You will be asked to sign in with your Google account. Sign in then press “Next”.
Enter your password and click “Next”.
Fill in the account recovery details on the next screen, review and press “Done”.
Agree to the various terms of service by clicking the checkboxes and press “Agree and Continue”.
Confirm or add your address and add your credit card information on the next screen and press “Start My Free Trial”.
You should now see a success message and now you are ready to work with Google Cloud!
