login the user with the details they supplied on the registration page e.g.

public sub Register(string username, string password, email){

 MembershipCreateStatus createStatus = MembershipService.CreateUser(model.UserName, model.Password, model.Email);
                if (createStatus == MembershipCreateStatus.Success)
                {
                   FormsAuthentication.Authenticate(username, password);
                    Response.Redirect("profilepage.aspx");
                }else{//show registration errors}
}

should this work on its own?

  FormsAuthentication.Authenticate("myusername", "mypassword");
  Response.Redirect("profilepage.aspx");
