The server guy wants to add “Powered by <his company name>” to a website I designed and developed.

So I recently designed a WordPress website for a NGO, and migrated it to their hosting. The person in charge of the server has requested to add “Powered by <his company name>” in the footer credits. I never add any footer credits to the website that I create (not even mine). Will adding this “Powered by…” with his company name discredit my work completely. Or it won’t make any difference. What does ‘Powered by’ term generally indicate?

  1. Quite likely he wants to add a backlink for his website for SEO reasons.
    Does this discredit your work? Not sure but I wouldn’t personally let a ‘server guy’ do that.
