This is a potential problem first pointed out to me by my friends at TNT Dental:
Your domain name is a business asset
It has value. It is as much a part of your business as the name, the logo, and the client list. You should always be in control of your domain name. Never let anyone else register it for you. If you ever decide to sell the business, the domain name is a part of the assets included with the business.
via What to do if your web designer registers your domain in their name – Massage Therapy World.
The problem arises when a dentist (or any small business owner) contracts with a web designer to create a business web page and the web company registers the domain in their name not in the name of the dentist. There are several well known web site companies in dentistry who do this routinely. The linked article explains it all well.
To find out who owns your domain you can look it up using an online data base called Whois. Just follow the link, type in your domain (that is your web site address such as drjones.com) and submit. Look for Registrant.
This past week, we witnessed the occurrence of two events with the capacity to reshape the Internet for the worst. First, the White House offered a full-throated endorsement “for the strongest possible rules” in support of “net neutrality,” which would prevent telecommunications suppliers from offering their customers priority services in exchange for higher rates.
The second was the response of AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson that his company was going to step back from investing billions of dollars in building out its own GiGaPower fiber network until it received greater clarity from the FCC as to what the rules of the game will be going forward.

“Net Neutrality” sounds good but in practice means government regulations to fix something that isn’t broken.
Turns out it wasn’t just in our heads: Data from app performance monitor Crittercism showed iOS 8’s crash rate was 60 percent higher than iOS 7 during their respective first months on handsets.

The White House had previously said in September 7.3 million people were enrolled in insurance coverage through the marketplaces. An analysis of those enrollments, provided to Bloomberg by the House Oversight and Government Committee, shows that as many as 400,000 of those plans were just for dental coverage and not medical plans.
…Without counting the dental plan sign-ups, the White House falls below federal projections of 7 million sign-ups in 2014. House Republicans have charged that the White House was trying to hide the actual enrollment numbers.

Dentistry turns out to be a big part of Obamacare. At least a big part of making it look better than it is.
