Domain Ownership – Important!

domain-256This past month we’ve run into a few problems with clients not having access to their business domain. We can’t stress enough, that domains should always be purchased by the business owner, and not the developer.

If in doubt, enter your domain here. This won’t always reveal the details, but it’s a good start point.
