To have full control over your website, you need to own your domain name. The owner of the domain has every right to take the website down and potentially ruin your website.
Your website is your property FULL STOP. Common domain name misunderstandings…
It may appear that you own your domain name and website but it is common for web agencies to register the domain name in their name. These agencies usually charge low upfront costs for the initial website build and then charge excessive amounts of money for the maintenance thereafter. As you don’t own the rights to the domain name you result in paying excessive fees otherwise you may lose your website. You would be surprised how common this is.
We register all domain names in your name/company name and any website we build would be owned by you.
