I'm a web designer freelancer. I just started freelancing. What is the best process for web hosting plan payments? Do I sign up for web hosting plan myself using my credit card and collect payments yearly or do I ask the client to sign up for web hosting himself using his credit card? Please let me know what is the best option?
Always always always have the client make these payments. It's fine if you are there helping them set it up but at the end of the day it's their site, they need to pay for it. Not to mention if you pay for it then you are stuck having to collect payment from your clients and all of a sudden you need to go into debt collector mode. It's beneficial to have the client pay for it for the client's sake as well as they can maintain access to their web account, and not the designer.
