The Rules.

2.5.2012

I have two simple rules which, as a web developer, I hope not to break:

  1. Never buy registration, hosting or other services for your client. Help them figure out what service they need to buy, but have the client create the accounts and pay for all their services.
  2. Never break rule #1.

This is about "skin in the game"; ensuring that the client has a significant commitment to the project. If you do this yourself, eventually you'll get stuck with the bill, and a client who doesn't care about their website.
