I remember in 2006 November, I found a Webpage designers on the Internet, please he gave me a website. Because I don't know the site was, therefore, space, domain name database is that designers are purchasing, the so-called one-stop services.
Waste collection network is the first of my sites, beautifully designed, I very love. The designers gave me the website address, login account and password, I can log in to the background to update information, membership information query. I think this website is behoove, me.
But once, do not remember what reason, suddenly began to talk about website ownership problem. The designer has said to me: ownership of the website is me, you only have the right to use.
I was a stupid. This website is obviously I spent the money, how do I also only the right to use, not ownership? So I argued with him. But he took no notice of me. Because other people in Guilin, I was in Shenzhen, only through the QQ communication, so once he keeps silence, I again how to argue, also be of no avail.
Then, I deeply understand the web site construction industry I found, for China thousands on thousands of enterprises (especially SMEs), for their own official website, no ownership, but only the right to use.
Where is the reason?
Is the so-called "one-stop services".
Usually, the small and medium-sized enterprise basically is to be utterly ignorant of the website construction, domain name, buy space, database, and web site production, is delivered to the network, all in one service. Network company site in the space business (usually network, new network), buy domain name registered, space, database, although the registration information is the customer, but the domain password, IP address, FTP account and password, database account and password, everything is in the hands of the network company. But the customer because do not know these, so there is no sense to network company for these data.
In this way, customers in these important data, they are firmly in control in the hands of the network company, this is equivalent to the ownership of the site, is a network company, but customers spent all the money, but only the site use right.
What is the result?
Because the network company in the market survival are usually very short, are set up a disappeared, so if your web site service provider failed, so, when your site domain name, space, database expires (usually one year cycle), but you can't find your service provider to you renew, so, I'm sorry, your website will automatically shut down. For this kind of thing, enterprises themselves are generally unable to find a solution, but to re find another new network company, buy a domain, space, the new database, making marketing type website construction new. So much trouble, you should be very clear.
I have a SEO students, on the troubles. His official website, in 2011, of course, is the so-called "one-stop services", network domain name, database space, for he buys on sb's behalf, then the total charged him 5800 yuan fee, said to be another two years of maintenance fee. The result, in August this year, the students I find I said, that network company goes bankrupt, now nobody, his name is due, the website also will be closed.
I have a SEO student, not satisfied with the original site, want me to give him a new web site. I called him to the original network, the FTP account and password, database account and password are coming back, and also told he must request the original network company and with the help of this web site to normal on-line decompression. But did not think of is, the network companies are not willing to give him the data, threatened to do new sites must be to them to do. -- this is really no way, who call the data are in our hands the network company. They are willing to give you, is the occupation moral good; they're not willing to give, you haven't, you can't go to court.
All this trouble, come from: domain name space, database, network company to help you purchase, password grasp in their hands.
So, for those who did not get the data information of the enterprise, one can't change the fact that: they spent money, but only the site use rights, not ownership.
Even if your service provider to provide the data to you, you also want to ask them to help decompression, and then to on-line website. This is really very troublesome.
So, if you really want to control your website, your best way is: to the space business website to purchase the domain name, space, database, and completes the domain name record. Then put these good, after your site is completely controlled in your hand, you can go after the expiry of their renewals, also can be replaced at any time to update the site service provider. All you need.
So, if someone asked me to do it, I will advise him to buy their own domain name, space, database. This is true for the benefit of customers.
