MUCHO IMPORTANTE! BE MASTER OF YOUR DOMAIN… AND HOSTING ACCOUNT!
I’ve seen it way too often: a small business hires a webpage designer to build them a site. The designer purchases the new domain name for the client, and hosting package, and slaps them both into his/her own account rather than creating a separate one for the business. Then years pass by, and the webpage designer gets a new job, stops servicing the client, or just falls off the face of the earth. Then the client wants to make changes to their website but they can’t access it since the domain and hosting account are registered to the old designer.
Don’t let it happen to you! Make sure that when you hire a website designer you DEMAND that the domain name and hosting are put in an account that is registered to YOU, the business owner!
