One of the areas of confusion a frustration is how to cancel your Amazon S3 account. Please understand me right! Under no account I want to tell you that you have to cancel your account for the reason of poor quality and performance. I am a big fun of Amazon S3 and I have several accounts there. Our company CloudBerry lab is Amazon S3 tools vendor and our success is riding on that of Amazon S3. In other words the more accounts are out there is the better for us!
Anyways, sometimes you need to cancel your Amazon S3 account. For instance you have several of them for different purposes and you don’t need one of them anymore just to make things manageable. You might be a developer experimenting with different stuff using different S3 accounts and ready to move to production and don’t need one of your test accounts anymore.
Cancelling Amazon S3 account
So here is what you have to do. Go to http://aws.amazon.com/account/ and click “Account Activity” link in the menu.
Find Simple Storage Service in the list and click “view/edit service”
Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page to find “Cancel Service” link
You will get another screen where you have to confirm that you really want to cancel the service. Again scroll all the way to the bottom to click “Cancel this Service” button
Now your service if effectively cancelled
In conclusion, I would like to tell you that we really hope you will cancel Amazon S3 service rarely, only when you have a good reason for it.
