As a business, ‘new’ can often be a very scary concept. New is full of risks, as is anything venturing into the unknown but, when running a company, such open risks are always a major cause for concern.
When it comes to software, adapting and transferring to new software is a perfect example. Most of the time, however, this is because companies do not know how to protect themselves in the digital era. Running a website, for instance, also falls into this category, with many entrepreneurs not confident about the back-end legal work needed to do it right.
Fortunately, you live in an age where technology integration is at one of its all time highs. Modern solutions make for effective and efficient transforms. As such, the information here can help you adapt, rather than work with outdated products and concepts.
When owning and operating a website, there are few regulations you need to oblige such as registry data laws. These are fairly simple to understand and set up solutions for and, for the most part, do not interfere with the software you use, so you can go ahead and integrate new options and solutions.
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) requires most generic top level domains to send regular data to a remote storage option, such as escrow. This may sound scary, warding off many businesses, but it’s quite a simple process with the right agency.
Once set up, an ICANN registry data escrow service can be automated, ensuring there is little work on your part, a perfect example of implementing modern solutions to ease company operations.

Likewise, if you’re planning or considering the use of new software, escrow can also help ensure this is working. When you become dependent on a product, especially one which is leased and not sold to you like with digital products, it can be a major risk to your business and your success.
In this regard, escrow can act as investment and protect your assets. In the event the product does not work, an agency can judge whether or not the provider has broken their end of the Software as a Service agreement (SaaS).
If so, they can give you the source code, essentially putting the product in your hands. Yet the sheer benefit of escrow is that it rarely comes to this – if you’re concerned about the potential reliability of a product, having a provider put the code in escrow helps ensure they do not let it come to that.
