I just read a piece that really hit home. I've said this before, but, to quote from this article "It’s astounding to me how many businesses come to us without their data after leaving an agency. In fact, many come to us not even owning their own website." Many designers will register your domain name but put themselves in all the contact fields- Registrant, Admin, and Technical, which means that they technically own your domain, and releasing it from an unwilling (or missing) designer can be a nightmare.

Once your domain name is registered, go to or similar site, and check your domain name. Make certain at least two of the names are people associated with your company- I recommend two different names- so you have control if the need arises. Do this before your designer is paid in full so you have some recourse if they reuse to change it. The designer should also be willing to give you copies of your web files- you own anything you paid for.

Here is a link to the article:
