How to Sign Up for a Free Ning Account

By Manny Hernandez

Ning makes it easy for you to sign up for an account — and it’s free! Go ahead and join the online Ning world by creating an account:

1Go to the Ning home page.

A Join Now link appears in the upper-right of the home page

2Click the Join Now link.

The Sign Up page opens.

3Enter your actual name or a nickname in the Name text box.

Use the name by which you want to be known in networks on Ning.

4Type the address you want to use for your Ning account in the Email Address text box.

You need to enter a valid e-mail address to which you have access.

5In the Password and Retype Password text boxes, enter a password.

Think of something that isn’t too obvious . . . you know, try avoiding things like your last name or the name of your dog.

6Select the month, day, and year you were born in the Birthday drop-down lists.

Your date of birth is required to confirm that you’re eligible to use Ning.

7In the Type the 2 Words on the Right text box, enter the weird-looking words you see.

This element makes sure you’re a human and not a computer setting up an account on Ning.

8If you want, click the Terms or Service and Privacy Policy links to get the scoop on Ning regulations.

Find out all the definitions, policies, licenses, and fun things you always read in detail when you sign up for a new service.

9When you finish entering all the information you need to, click the Sign Up button.

Your Ning Activity Feed appears, asking you to input profile information — you now have a Ning account!
