As you can remember, Pottermore beta was exclusive for the million users last August 2011 and was set for October release but was delayed due to server concerns. Last June, J.K. Rowling announced that Pottermore site will be available for Harry Potter fans wherein they can read new content about Potter Universe and can purchase online books in e-book formats. Finally, at the end of March, the site made it possible to download e-books and generated $1.5 Million in e-Book sales just in a matter of 3 days after its release.
The final wait is over and everyone can now access Pottermore portal. I also tried to access Pottermore but after registration and signing up. An e-mail with a link is sent to your email address states: “You’ve successfully validated your Pottermore account and username. We will send you an email to let you know when you can explore Pottermore.”
There’s a blog post from Pottermore stating that there will be a sorting in accepting the users. It states:
“Over the coming days, we’ll be inviting new users onto Pottermore.com. We’re expecting to be really busy to start with and plan to activate new registration in a steady stream. This means that you may not get access to Pottermore immediately after sign up but we will get you exploring the site as quickly as possible”
The content and interactive features of the site relates to the first book of Harry Potter “The Sorcerer’s Stone” and the user will be sorted in one of the four Hogwarts houses through the Sorting Hat. The four Hogwarts houses are: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw.
