Gaining Access to Domain Name

Access to Important Accounts

It’s best to have them add you as a user to their accounts instead of sharing their usernames and passwords with you. That way all your changes will be tracked under your account so you can’t be accused of something someone else did. Also, if you were to ever part ways, they can easily shut off your access to their accounts, thus protecting you from any accusations down the road.

Website Domain Name

When onboarding a new client, you may want access to their domain name so that you can make changes to their DNS settings, subdomains, etc. Typically, they can simply add you as a user or you can request that the domain be transferred to your account.
