Who Owns Your Domain Name?

Who Owns Your Domain Name?

Have you bought it yourself?  Or has your web site designer bought it for you?  It’s important that you know because it does make a difference.


If you’ve bought your own domain name then you own it and will get reminders when it is due for renewal.  However, if your web site designer has bought it, unless they transfer/register the domain name to you then they could own it.  And only they will receive the notifications when it is due for renewal.


We have spoken to a few people recently whose web sites have disappeared.  Their web site designer has changed jobs / moved countries and so their web site hosting has not been renewed and their web site has vanished into the ether.


We tend to recommend that clients buy their own domain names – we tell  you how to do it so you are always in control of your own name.


If you want to talk to us about hosting and/or designing your web site then please do give us a call on 0161 366 8499 or get in touch.
