Is there a way to have the sign up page use a custom page

Is there a way to have the sign up page use a custom page instead of my home page for sign ups? My home page has too many distracting things to be on the sign up page.

I read a good number of posts but they are older threads so was afraid to implement them.

Arrons post here made the most sense. https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/can-signup-page-use-page-template-rather-than-home-page

Please advise. Thanks for your help. - Jan
