If you have the opportunity to register your domain name with the same company providing you online services – don’t do it, advises Cnet’s Michael Horowitz.
He writes A small business setting up a new Web site is likely to be tempted by the one-stop shopping offered by Office Live Small Business. Many registrars host Web sites and any company hosting a Web site will also register a domain name. But, you are better off getting these services from different companies….For one thing, using two companies makes it easier to switch Web site hosting companies in the future, should the need arise. More importantly though, it insures the domain is yours.
This sounds like a small issue, but I’ve heard this advice from more than one person. In case something happens with your service provider you can always have your domain name registrar point your domain to another service provider.
