Implementing the ability for front-end users to register as members on an Umbraco managed website is one of the easiest things you’ll need to do when working with Umbraco - everything is there for you!

Since the latest install of Umbraco 4.1 uses the ASP.NET Membership provider, all the abstract classes which are provided with ASP.NET are capable of accessing the Umbraco Member. What this means is that we are able to use the robust login (authentication) functionality that ASP.NET provides for Web applications without requiring additional programming. Some of these controls that are readily available include 

Popping these onto your page will work without a doubt, however you may need to play around with styling and perhaps setup LayoutTemplates / UserNameTemplates to ensure the design team doesn’t get on your case for messing with their hard work (and drop shadows).

And that’s it! You’ll just need to ensure you setup a registration page and use the System.Web.Security.Membership.CreateUser() method to save a member’s details.
