After selecting the Instance type click on “Next: Configure Instance Details”.

Now click on “View Instances” to see all instance lists and you can see the IP address ( IPv4 Public IP ) of this instance, This IP will be used when you will connect to this instance using the terminal or you will map with the domain name.

Summarizing:

                    * We have a Public IP like 34.219.193.28
                    * We have a demo-instance.pem file
                    All the above info/data will be used to take the remote access of this instance.
                    

Congrats… Your AWS instance is created now.
