Using your domain for OpenID

Logging in to Stack Overflow today my curiosity about using OpenID got the better of me. I wanted to use my domain name as my login identifier. I quickly found instructions on using my domain with Google as my OpenID provider but I wanted to use myopenid.com

Turns out the process is really easy. The process is covered here: https://www.myopenid.com/help#own_domain

You just add the following tags to your page’s head tag.

<link rel="openid.server" href="http://www.myopenid.com/server" />
<link rel="openid.delegate" href="http://youraccount.myopenid.com/" />
<link rel="openid2.local_id" href="http://youraccount.myopenid.com" />
<link rel="openid2.provider" href="http://www.myopenid.com/server" />
<meta http-equiv="X-XRDS-Location" 
    content="http://www.myopenid.com/xrds?username=youraccount.myopenid.com" />

Voila! You can now use your domain as your login for OpenID!
