To create a Hotmail account, you will need:

Find a unique name to create your new Hotmail email address; to make the process much easier, Hotmail has a check availability button in case someone else already has the exact username you want.
- Continue the registration process. After choosing a username, type in a password. So your Hotmail account will not be easily accessed by hackers, it is recommended that you creat a strong password–use numbers or words that have a special meaning to you but do not use lowercase and uppercase numbers, letters or symbols in your Hotmail password. You have the option to use an alternate email address (other than Hotmail) if you forget your password or choose a security question.
- Finish the registration process. To complete the registration process, type in your first and last name, country, state of residence, birth date, and gender to create a Hotmail profile.
