I’ve seen a few cases in the last couple of months where people have made contact, asking about their existing website, and whether I can make updates or changes to it.
In all of these cases, their existing administrator has done a very dirty trick! Registering the site in their name and using their own address instead of the client’s. Make sure that your site is registered in your name, with your address. Admin’s may keep their email address as contact, but it makes life difficult if the site is registered in their name, particularly if things go sour between you.
It does mean that you will have to remember to diarise the renewal of the site, but it also means you can get the site back if you need to.
Here at Village Web Design, all our host packages are hosted with the client’s name and address, and the domain belongs to you! Guaranteed!
