Picture this: The web company you’ve worked with for the last five years has suddenly gone out of business. You’ve called and emailed them repeatedly and you are unable to get a response. You desperately need to log into your website but your username and password don’t seem to be working. Frantically, you’re trying to find someone else to help you only to discover that you don’t even own your own website.
That’s right, your domain and hosting are all owned by the web company you hired and your hands are tied.
