Hi Claudia,

While we do offer the option to download your site and host it elsewhere, we strongly urge you to consider hosting your site with us instead, for following reasons below. There aren't any services available that will allow you to upload and then edit your Yola site (that I'm aware of).

1. It is far easier to make changes to your site after you publish it. All you have to do is click the "Publish to the web" button and your latest changes will be instantly applied to your live site. If you host your site elsewhere you will have to repeat the download/upload process each time you want to make a change to your website.
2. No technical difficulties! It just works! Uploading your site to your own webhost is technically complicated and may be a daunting process if you are not familiar with it.
3. We can offer you full support for every aspect of building and publishing your site. Support is available 24/7. If you host elsewhere, all support related to the hosting of your site becomes the responsibility of your hosting provider. We will not be able to assist you if problems arise as we do not have access to your hosting environment.
4. A team of experts provides excellent uptime for your published sites. Even when the Sitebuilder goes down for maintenance, your published sites remain up. If anything unforseen does go wrong, the Yola team will respond quickly and effectively to solve the problem.

I hope that answers your questions. Please let us know if further clarification is needed.
