3 Steps to Actually Own Your Website

Own Your Website

If your website developer fell down in the forest, would you still have access to your website? You need a person who understands the aspects of it in and out — a person who knows how to use software like SpamZilla and many others which are quite essential.

If the answer to this simple question is no it means that you are not in possession of arguably your most important piece of online real estate. Imagine hiring a contractor to build a new office for your business, but never bothering to get the keys from him once completed – unthinkable.

But that is exactly what happens if you never bother to get a copy of the credentials to access your website. To ensure that you actually own your website these are the credentials you need to keep a copy of.
