How to Terminate Any Instance in AWS New Version?
Pre-requisite: AWS, EC2 instances
Whenever we create an instance, we should think of termination too. AWS follows a “pay-per-use” strategy where if we forgot to terminate an instance it may lead to unusual billing.
For free tier accounts, it will be free with limitations. So, we should terminate our instance after the completion of usage. We can also stop the instance when we are not using it and start the instance whenever needed.
States of Instance
- Stop instance
- Start instance
- Reboot instance
- Hibernate instance
- Terminate instance
After completion of usage, if you do not use further terminate the instance. If there is further usage, stop the instance. To know how many instances are running and to know more about the instances click on “Instances”.
Click and select the instance that has to be terminated.
Under instance state, click on terminate instance. Now, in the popup give the confirmation by clicking on terminate. You will see a message “Successfully terminated <Instance ID> “
Your instance will be still visible for some time with the state as “Terminated“.After some time it will be removed by AWS.
