I just purchased my new domain. I have plans to build a Social networking site for this domain. I'm in the drafting plan stages. I want to build my own site using my designers . Can we upload my site to Yola after building it fully ...Is there any option for that?

Sorry,Sadly there isn't this feature on Yola.
But we a bit of creativity you can make some amazing sites.
Take a look at the site gallery to get some ideas and inspiration

Thanks John. I really love Yola Services. In this case, I have another question. Since I purchased this domain to make my own social networking website, can i transfer this domain to different host and use my existing domains to build new websites here in Yola with my existing account.

I believe so but you may have to check with a Yola employee.
If you read through these tutorials they may give you some help about transferring domains.

Hello venu.psg,
If you have a domain purchased from Yola and you would like to use it for a site you build somewhere else you can do this without transferring the domain, we can remain your domain manager. Is this what you are wanting to do?

Thanks Emmy. My question is Can I keep the domain here in Yola and get hosting somewhere else and upload my site there(bcoz i'm creating my own social networking site for this domain). Is it possible? Because I really dont want to leave Yola. I love Yola services and people here......

Hello,

Yes, you can keep your domain with Yola and use it for a site you host elsewhere. What you can do is edit your DNS settings so that your domain points to your new provider (website host). Depending on the host you're moving to, it would either be editing nameservers or creating an A Record, your new website host will be able to give you this information. If you would like to email us at cs@yola.com when you have this information we can help you with adding it to your domain settings. This means that you will still get a renewal reminder from us 11 months after purchase. If you choose this option, please view this tutorial: DNS for your domain purchased from Yola.

Does that answer your question?

Yes it answered. Just got a question in mind. Lets say like 'X' is transferring his domain to another host for some reason. Will their Yola account be active, so that they can create new websites and publish them here.

Yep, great question! You can keep your Yola account active even if you use your domain elsewhere.
