Perhaps the most common problem is that you have forgotton your username and/or password and can't login to your account to get registered.

This is not an account you use every day, so we get that. 

But help is available to get you through this hurdle.  Here is what you can do to get going.

  1. Make sure you are using the correct USERNAME. You would be surprised how may people I've helped, only to discover they've been using the wrong username!
  2. Reset your password.

TIP: Are you 100% sure you remember your username? If not, then use the first tool to retrieve it, because you will need your correct username to use the second tool to reset your password. It only takes a minute or two, and can save you some frustration later on.

1. Use the 'Forgot your Username?' tool to RETRIEVE YOUR USERNAME

After clicking "Sign In or Sign Up", click on "Forgot your Username?"

On the next screen, enter your EMAIL ADDRESS, perform the Captcha Test, and click Submit.

If you get an error message that says, "Reminder failed: User not found", it means that we could not find an account with that email address, so you either signed up with a different email address or you don't have an account set up yet on this website. 

Otherwise, wait a minute or so and then check your email.  It will look something like this:

If all else fails ...

If you did not receive the email messages described. Please look in your SPAM or JUNK MAIL folder first. AOL, Yahoo, MSN, and Hotmail are NOTORIOUS for putting it there — sometimes they don't deliver it at all!

If you STILL do not find the email message, please use the PASSWORD RESET REQUEST form, and the Registrar will help you to go with "Plan B" to get the problem resolved.

After this, you'll know your username and password. We encourage you to keep that information in a safe place so you will remember it next time. :-)
