After 4 years hand-coding websites, 2 years setting up and running WordPress sites, I launched my first website on in 2006 and never looked back. Since then, I’ve helped other site owners safely navigate through the ins and outs of the ever-changing ecosystem. Find me at

  1. yes there should be a better way to do ownership – we see on a regular basis people in the forum “the person that set up the blog is no longer with us – what do we do now?”

    The upgrades can use some improvements in the renewal process for the same reason – maybe adding a second Admin that has renewal rights – if set up at the start maybe people would fill in the box with a second person

    1. It’s really a company’s responsibility to be cautious with their assets, but they may be unaware of the full ramifications of their actions.That’s why I propose a second level of Admin. Effectively, of course this would not prevent a disgruntled employee from deleting the site’s content, but at least the site address would remain intact, which is the main problem.

      Nice idea about the additional Admin for renewals as well.

      1. Correct – Many companies don’t understand the ownership issue – they think of the cost like a printer cartridge bought by an employee and then put in the printer and then getting reimbursed – I doubt that many people / companies – think that far ahead – also some people are afraid of Admin privileges – I set up a blog for some friends – tried to transfer it to them but they did not want the Admin rights – so I still own it and they are Editor on their own site

Kvetch or kvell, it's all good, but be a mensch.
