Do You Control Your Name? Make SURE you do.

I’m not referring of course to your “name” but to your domain name. Your domain name, like your business name is SO very important. If you leave your web design to your designer, make sure that at least your domain name is legally and practically in your hands and that you know who hosts the domain name and that they have you on file as the owner.
Jon Jantsch of Duct Tape Marketing writes Your domain name is just that, control of the name – bobsmith.com for example. Your domain host is another element altogether and is probably your web host. You assign who hosts your domain name by controlling your domain name. Many web designers or hosts will set all of this up for you including registering your domain name – you need to separate your domain name control from your domain host and keep it secure.
