Sign up

Signing up for Neon is easy. Simply navigate to and sign up with your email, Github, Google, or partner account. Neon Console sign up

After signing up, you are directed to the Neon Console to create your first project. Enter a name for your project, select a Postgres version, provide a database name, and select a region. Generally, you'll want to select the region closest to your application. When you're finished, click Create project. Neon Console sign up

You are presented with the connection details for your new project, which you can use to connect to your database from a client or application. You can save the connection details or retrieve them later from the Connection details widget on the Neon Dashboard. Connection details dialog

Signing in to a social account with your email

If you already have a Neon account using one of our social or partner login options but you now want to sign in with your email account, all you have to do is add a password to your profile.

Go to Profile and click Update Password.


If you don't see an Update Password button, please sign out and sign back in. You should then see the option. This is a legacy issue; it will be resolved soon.

You will be guided through a few steps, asking you to reauthenticate using your original social account, and then create your new password. After that, you are free to sign into your Neon account using either your social account or the email option.

Changing your email

If you've signed up with a social or partner login and now want to change your email — for example, you previously signed up using a GitHub, Google, or Hasura account and now want to use your personal email — you can make this change under Profile → Account Settings → Personal Information. Or follow this direct link: change email

After you make the change, you'll receive a notification at this new email address asking you to confirm. Once confirmed, you'll be logged out of Neon. Log back in with your new email, and use this email going forward.
