Who owns your domain?

If you are a small company, do you outsource your website development to a web design firm? If so, do you also make them register your domain and maintain? If so, think again!

Some person from a web design firm recently was exploring ways to make money out of the domains of his clients who got busted due to the bad economy and didn’t pay the dues. It appears he seems to be the domain admin of his client’s domains and so he can pretty much do whatever he wants. Like converting it into a website with affiliate links, of if the domain has a decent pagerank, selling paid links etc.

I understand that the web designer is trying to cover the losses, but in process abusing the access to the domain and hosting solution is probably not the right thing to do. That’s my opinion and I am open to read what others think. So, if you have any opinion on this specific topic, please comment on it.
