When the user enters the profile information.
Should I add this to the membership profile.

                string sConfirmationGUID = System.Guid.NewGuid().ToString("N");
                string sUserIP = Request.UserHostAddress;
                string sSessionID = this.Session.SessionID;

MembershipUser user = Membership.CreateUser(txtUserName.Text, txtPassword.Text, txtEmail.Text);

                ProfileCommon pc = Profile.GetProfile(user.UserName);
                pc.Email = txtEmail.Text;
                pc.FullName = txtFullName.Text;
                pc.DOB = Datepicker.Selected_Date.ToString();
                pc.Gender = Gender.ToString();

                pc.City = ddlCity.SelectedValue;
                pc.Region = ddlRegion.SelectedValue;
                pc.Country = ddlCountryRegister.SelectedValue;
====> put the information here for example.
                pc.Save();

In web.config, you can use allowAnonymous="true" in each profile property that you want to be able to store for anonymous users. Then, ASP.NET automatically does the job for you.

To add to my previous comment:
Obviously, if you want to store only authenticated user's profile information, there is no even need for setting the property.

This is authenticated users. What should I store from a programmer's point of view.

I'm not sure if I understand you question.
You can store whatever information you want, depending on your needs.
What I'm saying is that, in order for the Profile provider to work, is not necessary to store session IDs or user IPs, like in your exapmple.
Could you please clarify why you want to store that kind of information in the profile?

There is no "usually" I think. It depends on your needs.
