  2. You will then be taken to a website from which you can register for an account.  This looks similar to the registration process for any other WordPress site, except if you have accounts on other WordPress sites, your account will not work here.  So you must enter in a username and valid e-mail to be specifically used on this website before hitting the “Register” button.FAQ Registration Page
