  • Updated 6 years ago
After February 15, 2011, we will be changing the price of custom domain registration and renewals to $34.95/year (less than $3/month). This change will only affect the following domains: .com, .net, .us, .ca, .de, .es, .nl, and .eu.

For the last few months, we’ve been upgrading our hosting, security systems and features to protect your website from the threat of hackers and outages so when you renew your domain with us you get a whole lot more:

  • Upgraded, state-of-the-art website protection

  • Premium quality hosting for round-the-clock care and fewer down times

  • Advanced global DNS management to quickly allow you to make domain changes yourself

  • Award-winning support team available 24/7

  • Instant setup gets your website online in no time


For our Yola customers, we want to give you the opportunity to renew your domain now before the price increase. You can also save an additional 10% if you renew for 2 years or more - only $35.90 for 2 years ($1.50/month)

If you need more information on how to renew your domain you can visit our Community Support forum.

We’re constantly working toward helping your business be more successful and we're here to answer any questions you may have.

Thank you for being part of the Yola family!

Hello cmd ceramics,
If you purchase a Yola domain, we will certainly host your site for free! Take a peek at our domains page for further information.

Hello Yola! What about the pricing for domain transfer to Yola from other registrants?

Hi, beachtravelsMaster,

Since a transfer is effectively the same as a renewal, the pricing is the same as above $34.95/year.

What about if you transfer a .org domain name? Will it be $35/year?

Hello Nathan - .org domains are sold at $19.95 so it will be the same price to transfer one to Yola.

I remember the good old days when Yola wasn't greedy, you use to be able to use a custom domain for FREE on Yola. But not anymore.

I'm sorry you feel our need to grow and maintain a successful business is greedy. We are committed to our goal of getting small businesses online. We have added features and functionality to that end and will continue to do so. We are pleased to continue offering a free package for members evaluating Yola to determine if it will meet their needs but free hosting of externally purchased custom domains was no longer sustainable for our business.
