This template can be used to flag an external link that requires free registration.

Use {{registration required}} when you find an external link within a paragraph or a reference citation, where it is necessary to register with the website (but not pay anything) in order to view the page. Doing so will place a note by the URL.

Append this template directly after the external link or citation template, leaving the original link intact. Not doing so will prevent detection from automated tools. This tag should be placed within the reference, i.e. between the <ref> and </ref> tags. The notice will then appear in the footnote reference (instead of in the body of the text, which is not recommended).
