(4) The next step is to register your site to get an unique URL. You need not have to provide your blog URL. Instead you have to provide a shortname which will be displayed on the Disqus setup instructions page.

(5) The next step is to login using the Disqus login and password from within admin dashboard. You will be able to view your site name as soon as you login and the plugin will be installed completely.

You should note that all the comments posted from your blog will route through Disqus. You have to moderate the comments from within the Disqus dashboard in future.

If you place your mouse over the Name field the other two options namely Email and Password will appear. Disqus is more or less a discussion based threading system which encourages readers to post comments.
