    Hello all! Haven't been here in quite some time. Now, if I were to call up a client, and they wanted me to design their website, would I host it on a server I have access to? How would they have access to it as well? They're eventually going to need access, so that they can update their website (as opposed to calling me every time they need something changed). What's the best way of doing this? I'm trying to be as organized as possible.

    Perhaps a Hostgator reseller account, or else, if your using wordpress/script , just give them the username and password!

    I'll keep that in mind. Does an option exist for Wordpress, that allows a "client login" option? That way all they see is their posts, categories, etc. That would be the best option.

    Of course, in WP admin dashboard, go to user>add new, and create a login and password for your client :)
