I’ve been working with my church to help them get a more dynamic web presence, and we’re just about ready to go. I’ve registered a new domain for them and we’ve been testing things. Now we’re ready to launch it.
I want the church to own the domain and to be able to manage the billing. They will sign up for their own hosting plan and pay for it themselves. All I want out of the deal is for them to list me as the referer, for the small reward.
When they go to signup for a plan, they are asked for a domain. When they enter the one I registered for them, Dreamhost won’t let them proceed. How do I handle this?
As I see it, there are a few options:
Church creates a new, separate Web ID. I update the domain registration information so they own it. But then how do I transfer control of that domain to the other Web ID? And how then do they sign up for hosting?
I create a separate account under my Web ID for the church, with separate billing. They then signup for hosting and we transfer the domains registration as above. How then do I get the reward for referring them, if this is still under my Web ID?
Anybody dealt with something similar for a client?
