Unscrupulous web companies may use the tactic of "one-time payment, permanent ownership of the website" to attract them. This tactic appears appealing because customers only have to pay once to permanently own the website, which seems like a great deal. However, in this situation, the web company often does not provide sufficient service and support.
Customers may encounter website maintenance, updates, and security issues, but the web company will not provide assistance. This means that customers are likely to lose more money due to website problems.
For example, if the website encounters a vulnerability or virus infection, customers may be at risk of data leakage, website paralysis, or even being hacked. These issues not only pose a threat to the security and privacy of customers’ data, but also may result in losses in the operation of the website.
However, if customers choose the "one-time payment, permanent ownership of the website" option, the web company is likely not to provide assistance in solving these problems. Customers may be forced to solve the problems themselves or hire a third-party company to solve the problems, which will cost them more money.
Therefore, when customers are looking for a web company, it is best to choose an experienced company. These companies usually provide more comprehensive services and support, allowing the customer’s website to operate smoothly. At the same time, these companies also offer reasonable pricing plans, allowing the customer to understand the fees they will pay. Most importantly, these companies have a reputation for not using deceptive tactics to earn customers’ money. By carefully choosing a web company, customers can avoid being deceived by unscrupulous companies.
