    Lets say you have a site and want to scale up/outsource. you hire to work on your site maybe from another country. how do you do this? it seems extremely risky just handing over your site like that to someone. of course you can check the site daily but what else can you do?

    what exactly are you giving them access to? All my outsourcing has been done on WP platforms, and I just give then an author account where all the work they do is 'pending'.

    I faced the same problem before when outsourcing via scriptlance and so on, and i was only able to solve it in different ways:

    for design work: template based system , allow the designer only access to templates so he can not mess with the real code or steal something.

    coding: No chance to hide anything, because he will have to work on the code and all related files.. But try to keep it low, dont give access to everything just the related sourcecode for this project/part. This will make things more complicated for the programmer to run tests/see the whole picture. But for smaller adjustments it works great. Working with databases, you should just give them the structure of the tables, not the content of course..).


    I got ripped off many times, in different ways. You really have to be careful and dont believe anything until you see it. :)

    Use software like HiveDesk :D We're in our free beta right now. It helps you keep an eye on your workers and keeps them honest by giving you screenshots of their desktop every 10 mins and automatically time tracking (for hourly pay).
