Amazon Lightsail supports Windows Server, full locations, free first month

After a period of service on the Linux / Unix platform, Amazon finally added Windows Server to Lightsail. At a minimum cost of $10/month, after a few clicks you have a Windows server ready to connect to Remote Desktop to work.

Windows Server versions available for you to choose from when creating your server:

  • Windows Server 2016
  • Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Windows Server 2016 with SQL Express

Due to the built-in Windows license so the server rent here is a bit high. However, in return you will be free trial $10 package first month:

All Lightsail locations currently support Windows Server, including Singapore and Japan.

The $5 Linux server I introduced previously was still running a free first month policy.

With Amazon Lightsail trial policy, you have a great opportunity to experience the quality of service at the world’s largest cloud server provider.
