Staying in control of your website

Posted on April 21, 2018 at 1:41 pm

If you are a business owner then you may need to outsource your web design and programming project to a third party who has the skills and knowledge to allow them to create what you need.

Choosing a web developer can be hard as you will often have to go off previous examples of work they have done for other or you may be able to get a recommendation off a fellow business colleague.

It is important that you understand the basics of your website and what you would need to do should you ever have to move your site. Firstly your website will need a domain name. Ideally you should buy this yourself and then point it across to the web developer’s server or ask them to do that for you. This will allow you to save costs on domain renewal fees and also to ensure that you remain the owner of the domain name at all time.

You also should find out who the hosting company is if possible. You may not be able to gain access to the server but it may help in the future should you need to have the website moved.
