On Friday, we wrote about the risks of extended contracts for SEO and web design/maintenance services. We briefly touched on a subject that we definitely feel deserves further attention: Who owns your domain? As we will discuss in today’s blog, you do, and anyone saying otherwise is throwing up a major red flag.
You Own It!
Your domain, as well as your Google Maps and social media accounts, belong to you. Some companies will put in their contracts that they own your materials and then use this as leverage should you try and move your practice’s services to another company. Never sign with anyone that will claim ownership of your domain. When talking to a marketing company, this is actually an important question to ask. Any reputable marketing company will answer plainly that they don’t own your materials, but instead only access them during your reworking relationship to help maintain your website and social media pages. No one should try and take what is yours!
