A report was released this week in the United States by Nielsen and BabyCenter entitled 2012 American Media Mom, which has basically found that mothers are now multi-tasking, technological geniuses. Well, as a multi-tasking technological Mum, that's my take on it anyway! In all seriousness, this doesn't surprise me - the number of enquiries I get nowadays from Mums wanting a website has increased quite substantially since I first started doing this in 2006.
In the past week, two clients have contacted me to ask if they should pay a domain name renewal that has been sent to them in the mail.
Please be aware that there are some dodgy companys around that will send these letters, hoping that you will pay their inflated prices without thinking about it. This practice is apparently not illegal, although it's highly unethical.
Generally when I build a website for a client I also offer to take on the domain name management, as the company I lease hosting space from also offers very low-priced domain names, and it is also simpler to have your domain name and webhosting in the same place.
