    Here’s this week’s subject for discussion (I think a daily subject for discussion would be a fun idea, and might foster more of a community feeling here, but I don’t know if I can think of that many questions!)

    When you build a website for a client (family member, friend, whatever!), do you install it on their hosting site, or do you just zip up the site, e-mail it to them, and let them go ahead and install it?

    Or, do you offer different levels of services where a basic website might be more of the “do it yourself” variety versus the “white glove treatment.”

    Thoughts?

    In a client situation – I actually will set everything up on their hosting, however they don’t have access to the account until we are finished. I know a lot of people use offline programs to work on their sites, but I found that to be too much work transferring everything. So, I work on a LIVE hosting account, but the site is in maintenance mode until we are finished. And, I get 1/2 of the money up front – unless it’s a large project – I’ll ask for 2/3 of it up front. The final payment is due before I had over user id’s and passwords to all of the accounts.
