What are usernames used for?
|Your username is used to make a simple link or URL to your profile page. For example the username for the billion7 support account is billion7support, which means that a link to its profile page looks like:|
If no username had been created the URL would look like:
which is not as tidy and a lot less memorable.
Because your username forms part of the URL to your profile page it must conform to a standard, which means it cannot contain any spaces and must only contain lower case letters ( a-z ), numerals ( 0-9 ), a period ( . ), a hyphen ( - ), or an underscore ( _ ).
If you don't enter a username when you register a new account, you can change your username in your 'Account' section whenever you are signed in.
If you have a business account we strongly recommend that you create a username, as this will help search websites such as Google find links to your profile and information.
