With AWS Free Tier, you can get a year of unlimited Amazon Web Services cloud hosting and a 12-month subscription to the AWS Free Tier. This means you'll be able to use all of the AWS services for free, including Amazon S3 storage, Amazon EC2 instances, and Amazon DynamoDB. Not only is this a great deal for cloud users, but it's also a great way to get started with AWS.

If you exceed the limits of the AWS Free Tier, you will be charged for the additional usage. To avoid unexpected charges, it’s a good idea to regularly check your use of the AWS services and ensure you stay within the Free Tier’s limits.
