Do You Have Your Codes?

It’s usually the first question I ask new clients who already have websites.

“Do you have your codes?”

Your “codes” are those usernames & passwords for access to all your stuff. What codes do I usually need?

  • Domain Name user/pass
  • Web Hosting user/pass (and/or Control Panel user/pass)
  • Social Media user/pass
  • FTP Codes (if not under a Control Panel) IP/user/pass
  • WordPress Admin user/pass (or any CMS program, like Joomla, Drupal, etc.)

There can be other codes, based on what you already have set up.

Should you have them? YES! Do you have them? Did your current/previous web designer create the accounts for you? Did they register the domain name for you? Is it in YOUR name or THEIR name?

I can help get you the codes, in most cases. There are some cases where we need to go back to the person who created the account to get them. The problem lies if they are not available or unwilling to give them to you. Trust me … sometimes they are just unwilling to give them to you.
