Make Sure Your Organization Owns Its Domain

March 8, 2011 at 5:06 pm Leave a comment

If your organization’s website is managed by a provider, check with them to make sure you are listed as the domain registrant. A small non-profit I worked with recently discovered they were not. They originally set-up their website through a  provider.  Trying to change providers or consider a self-managed program became difficult.

Read this article at In Sync Web Design to learn more. From the article:

“Here is where your business identity is at risk. The “registrant contact” is the person who literally has life and death control over your web site name. If this “contact” is entered wrong, then the life of your business identity is literally in this person’s hands.”  –Amy Kesler, In Sync Web Design

While the article is written for small business owners, the advice applies to small non-profit organizations.
