Ok I searched and would like to have a more direct answer as to what the benefits are of having to pay for a premium account to host my site? Lets not sugar coat anything. I like to be told the entire truth and not worked around like a car salesman. Im aware that there are some more template designs available.

Besides this in the FAQ:
# The ability to create up to 25 sites in your account.
# Individual file uploads of up to 100MB.
# Total storage of 5GB per site and 125GB for all the sites in your account.
# The Yola Link removed from any free style you use in your account.
# One Premium Style credit. This credit can be used for all the sites in your account.
# The ability to upload HTML, Javascript and CSS files.
# Credits for services from iStockphotos, Facebook Ads Trial and Yahoo! Search

Can you:
upload and use your own templates(purchased or downloaded from elsewhere)?
have email addresses linked to your website?

If I have any more questions I will just reply back.

I would like existing customers to answer this with your thoughts as well.

I'd rather leave out opinions and stick to the solid factual information.

Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this and respond.

Hi Mike,

Thank you for posting! I'm sure there are other people who may have similar questions :)

To answer your questions:

1. Upload and use your own templates(purchased or downloaded from elsewhere)?
This is not possible on Yola - you can edit your style with your own CSS or by changing banners and backgrounds: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/persona.... You may find our style guide useful: http://www.yola.com/yola-style-guide.

2. Have email addresses linked to your website?
Email is not included with Yola Pro because an email service requires a professional domain which is also not a feature of the bundle, domains are sold separately.

If you need a domain name for your site, you will need to purchase this in addition to Yola Pro, or you can use a free Yola account and still purchase a domain if you wish to. If you would like more information on purchasing a professional domain here is a link to our tutorial: http://www.yola.com/buying-your-domai....

When you buy a domain name from Yola we provide you with full DNS management, which includes the ability to set up email addresses linked to your domain. You can do this with the email service of your choice. We recommend Google Apps as a really easy to use option and you can have up to 50 email addresses with a free account! We have a tutorial explaining the steps to setting up your email address with Google Apps or Windows Live, please click on this link: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/creatin....

I hope that helps! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
