Registering your Palace
To run your Palace, you must register it with Communities.com. Registering your site

Palaces in the entire Palace space, and resides on The Palace web site
). Users can click your Palace link to bring up a web page with
your Palace information. If you do have your Palace running, users can even access
your Palace from your Palace Site page.
Listing your Palace in The Palace Directory is not required. See The Palace
Directory on page 17 for more information.

The install script will prompt you for this registration code. Your Palace will not run
without a valid registration code.
For more information on The Palace Directory and maintaining information about your
Palace listing there, see The Palace Directory on page 17.
