domain name Archives | TXAD Internet
Owning your own domain name is one of the best decisions you can make for the success of your business. But hosting companies like to hold domain names hostage, so that you don’t have complete control. Why would a campground or RV park want to invest in an Internet service they couldn’t access? Here at TXAD Internet, we recognize this problem and give you complete control over your domain name.
Owning your domain name allows you to gain control of what people see when they search for your business. Your domain name plays heavily into Google search results, and having control of that name gives you some control of those search results. Using keywords related to your industry will also boost search engine results. TXAD Internet’s SEO packages help your park see better results in vast, open world of the Google search engine.
Recently, we here at TXAD Internet have been noticing a alarming trend that we thought we should share and get the word out about. That trend revolves around keeping track of the domain names associated with your website (or lack thereof).
TXAD Internet provides hosting for our clients files, as well as management of domain names should the client wish. However, we are of the mindset that it is in the best interest of the client to control their domain name, so they can do with it as they please. We have seen instances where clients have been run through the gamut by other providers that manipulate them into staying customers, simply because the company holds the reigns on the domain name. If for any reason a client that controls their own domain wished to change hosts, they are free to do so at their own discretion by taking that name elsewhere.
Would you let your auto mechanic have the title to your car just because he knows how to fix your radiator problem? Would you give your house deed to the lawn care company just because they can keep your yard looking nice?
The answer should be an overwhelming, “No!” Yet many web designers or marketing companies own the domain name of their clients websites. The domain name could be the most important part of the website. Without it no one would be able to find you online. Now, this isn’t a problem for every website, but is something I have seen more and more of as and businesses are building or updating their websites.
