You will be amazed how many companies we talk to who get into ownership issues with their websites. When commissioning a new website ensure you have it in writing that the website design and content copyright is passed to you on completion.
Bespoke coding will normally remain the copyright of the developer, however you can ensure the right remains for you to use it and or amend it if the website is transferred.
Ownership can be more complex with licensed websites, and if your website is built using WIX or Strikingly then you are tied to them and their hosting for the life of the website.
