The very first thing…
The very first item in this owners manual talks about your domain name and hosting account. We feel strongly that it is in the business owner best interest for them to retain control of your website. This is why we asked you to register your domain name and set up hosting with a well established vendor.
This means you always retain the keys to your site. This also means you are responsible to maintain your domain and hosting account provider. Don’t worry, this is actually pretty simple. Your vendor will contact you if necessary, by email. So just make sure the email on file with your vendor is valid. When your account is due for renewal they will almost always automatically charge your renewal fee to the credit card on file. So make sure the credit card on file is always valid.
We suggest you take a moment right now and record the contact information and account information details for your domain registrar and hosting company in a safe place along with your business records. It’s not really easy to let your domain name or hosting account expire, but if you do, its not always easy to recover your content.
