Terminate an Instance

Before you terminate the instance, verify that you won't lose any data by checking that your Amazon EBS volumes won't be deleted on termination and that you've copied any data that you need from your instance store volumes to Amazon EBS or Amazon S3.

To terminate the instance, proceed as follows:

  1. Open the Amazon EC2 console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/ec2/.

  2. In the navigation pane, select Instances.

  3. Select the instance and choose Actions.

  4. Select Instance State, and then select Terminate.

  5. Select Yes, Terminate when prompted for confirmation.
