  • Securing my website

    Hi All,

    Please advice me for this.

    I am not very sure for which forum i have to post this question. Am sorry if i am posting it to wrong forum.

    I have developed a site for my client, now i am going to upload the files in their hosting area. Only after uploading they are going to pay me. So for that i need to have some control. I don't know how to go about this.

    Please suggest me..

    Thanks i advance

    One thing that comes to my mind is to be sure you have the ftp access. Then if for some reason they don't pay, just take the site down.

      If you live in the same jurisdiction, get them to sign a contract.

        You could also use an escrow service.

          If it's a big sum use escrow. You can also use freelancer.com escrow system or other similar services.

            As stated before, I would have them sign some type of engagement agreement between you and their company. You have to protect yourself.

              escrow would protect you and the buyer and if it's anything over a couple hundred bucks its worth the price in most cases.

                I agree, because just because someone signs a contract doesn't always mean you will get your money. It should, but it doesn't, and could eat up your time trying to chase it down. Having it in escrow does away with all that.

                  Agreed, the contract doesn't guarantee payment, however, don't work in arrears for your payments. I get paid monthly (beginning of each month) if a client doesn't pay then I stop all work until they pay.

                    If it's a matter of the client wanting to see the site before they pay, you could always upload to another domain or a sub-domain for they to see. Then gather payment before you upload to their domain or their server. Otherwise, they have no reason to not pay you first.
