Benefits of sign In
Once signed in, your name and picture will appear in the right-hand corner of WebMatrix. When you create a local site, you'll get an option to provision a remote companion site automatically. If you don't want to provision a remote site, it's easy to skip (and you can easily provision it later using the Publish button).
All of your sites on Windows Azure will be listed in My Sites, even if you’ve never previously opened them.
