SharePoint site with no login

Is it possible to create a SharePoint site with open public access or a site where users can create their own username and password?  I want to create a site with an info form for users to fill out without having to set them up first.  Thanks

Yes

one of two ways.

AS you know the application must be tied to one authentication provider
[1] Default is windows, so you will need to enable a guest type account and have the user name and password passed to the page by the page itself.

[2] Extend your application , use forms based authentication and allow anonymous login , and at that stage you should be able to configure your security , to trim down where is public and private access depending on sites etc.
