For over 25 years, the team behind Umami have been building websites and online shops. And one of the questions we always ask when designing a new website for food or drink customers is, “where does your domain live?”. Because without knowing where your domain lives, you can’t launch a new website.
Sometimes it’s as simple as needing to speak to your IT department, or IT provider, but often a company has secured a domain on your behalf. What happens if that relationship breaks down, or they go out of business? You may think it won’t happen, but trust us, it does and to businesses of all sizes!
Imagine waking up one day and your website is down, it’s gone? Imagine your customers couldn’t see you online, what would they think? Maybe that you’d gone out of business?
Then imagine that your email just disappears and you can’t access it. NIGHTMARE, right?
But these things can easily happen if you don’t know where your domain lives, because if you don’t know where it lives it could expire and you’d be without your website and your email.
So, Michelle Dalley recorded this LinkedIn Live to help answer a few questions about one of your most important, and lowest cost assets.
