Liza here with another online marketing tip from contentmaximiser.com. Today, we are going to talk about how to protect yourself from your web developer.
If you are looking at developing a brand new website, very often you might get your web developer to register your domain name. You may have an idea of the domain name that you want and your web developer will organize everything for you, including registering the domain name with the domain registrar.
It is very important that you ask them to register the domain name under your business. So often, I have seen web developers register the domain name of their client under their own business name. What it means is that your web developer becomes the owner of your domain name. That is definitely something that you do not want. When you engage in a web developer, you either register the domain name yourself or you ask your web developer to register the domain name but make sure that you are the owner of the domain name and not them. Otherwise, you’re going to cause yourself a lot of headaches is down the track.
I have seen situations where the web developer has gone overseas. They try to get in contact with them and they just cannot get in contact with their web developer at all. So, like I said if you are going to register a new domain name, build a new website, make sure that it is register and your business name and not your web developer’s.
