Hi Annoyer707

Excellent question!

The disadvantages of hosting your site somewhere else are:
1)You will probably have to pay unless you don't mind having adverts on your site.
2) Each time you want to update your site you will have to re-download it and re-upload it to your hosting servers instead of the simple publishing process where you can update your site with a single click!
3) We will not be able to offer you support with hosting issues (we can only take you as far as building and downloading your site.)
4) An advantage of hosting with us is that there is no downtime for published sites, even when our site builder is down for maintenance published sites remain up! This is not something to be given up lightly.

Advantages of hosting elsewhere. . .
(I can't think of any)
Maybe someone else can jump in here and help me out?

i can think of another disadvantage. When you use a different host would be missing out on the great customer service and the feedbacks from other users. I have looked around and this forum and stuff is awesome and not as useful on other hosts

Well if you host your site somewhere else you can still get community support. Just not with the hosting part. But I am glad you see this forum as an advantage of SynthaSite!

Hello aptatbiz,

The download facility has been discontinued by Yola and your site files can no longer be transported to another hosting environment/provider
