Getting an Oracle.com Account

Before you can request a trial subscription or purchase a subscription to an Oracle Cloud service, you must have an Oracle.com account.

Oracle prefers that you use a valid business email address as the user name for your Oracle.com account. Your Oracle.com account gives you access to a variety of online applications and resources such as Oracle Store and My Oracle Support.

To get an Oracle.com account, you have two options:

  • You can create the account during the process of signing up for an Oracle Cloud service.

  • You can use the following procedure to create your Oracle.com account before you start your request for an Oracle Cloud service.

To sign up for a free Oracle.com account:

  1. Open your web browser and go to the Oracle.com website:
  2. Click Sign In/Register. The Sign In page opens.
  3. Click the Sign Up link. The Create Your Oracle Account page opens.
  4. Enter your account and personal information into the appropriate fields. Be sure to complete all required fields.
    Note that:
    • Oracle prefers that you use a valid business email address as the user name for your Oracle account. Valid email addresses use the following standard format:

      user-name@company-name.com

      Only one account can be created for each business email address.

    • Your password must be at least eight characters in length, must contain both uppercase and lowercase letters, and must contain at least one number.

  5. Click Create. Oracle creates your account and sends a confirmation email to the address you used to create the account.
  6. Follow the instructions in the email to verify the status of your email address.

    After your email address is verified, you can use your Oracle.com account to register for Oracle Cloud services.
