    My first client, who ended up using GoDaddy, made an account on their site and gave me the login information so I could add the correct products to the cart. However, after the client bought what they needed I was able to login to the account and had the ability to purchase more things since their credit card information was on the account. Now, of course I didn't purchase anything or abuse the information, but I was wondering how to avoid this kind of thing with my current client?

    I'm confused as to what you're asking.

    Well, of course, you could just not buy anything...
    Are you concerned about liability if somthing happens in their GoDaddy account they blame you?

    you should NOT have checked the little box that says "save my CC information"... on the form that you fill it on on... They can go back in and hide that... but I would encourage them to login to their account and change their password... for YOUR protection...

    Agreed, you should ask them in writing to change their password when you have finished using the account to remove any potential liability.

    The other thing you can do to protect yourself against liability is to destroy anything containing the password or credit card info (emails, pieces of paper, etc.) This is what I do to prevent against any possible liability.

    Mind you, your client is actually protected against unauthorized purchases by the credit card issuer. This falls under the category of "little-known fact", but if anyone disputes a credit card charge, the charge will be reversed and burden of proof falls on the merchant to show that the client wanted the product.

    3? Is that one beer per domain?

    You need to find someone who's in the domain reseller industry and get yourself good and plowed!

    This is actually a common ethical problem. I need to have access to client accounts of many kinds, and often those accounts include credit cards, bank accounts, etc. My company has an ethics policy that we provide to clients, which includes disclosing the information that we have access to.

    I never register the domain where I host.

    I pay for everything, and provide an invoice with the receipts and a surcharge for my time setting everything up. Most of my clients are only too happy to have me take care of everything, and it avoids me having to know their credit card numbers, etc.

    If they want to do it themselves, since they usually don't know how to go about it, I set an office appointment, and I walk them through it. That way when it comes to the credit info I can leave them alone to do it, again avoiding having credit information I'm not comfortable with. Again, I charge for my time.

    Either way, I print the relevant documents and give them a copy for their records.
