    Iíve Got 99 Problems, but a Host Ainít One - Keep Control of Your Domain Name


    (Page 2 of 4 )

    First, never let a web hosting company have control over your domain name. A popular marketing strategy for many web hosts is to provide you with a Ďfreeí domain name when you sign up for their hosting. Bad idea. As soon as you let most hosts register your domain, they have control of it. They may not even let you keep the domain if you decide to move to a different server. If they register the domain, they may very well not allow anyone to change the DNS servers in the record, which means that as long as you like your domain name, you will host your site on their machine.

    What kind of customer service do you think you will receive after attempting to move your site somewhere else? Make sure you register your domain by whatever means necessary so that you can freely change DNS servers and not lose ownership of the address you have worked so hard to make popular.
