If I were to cancel my subscription and delete my website, will I still be able to use my domain name somewhere else? If so, how long would it take to transfer my domain name?

Hello Anthony,

You can still use your domain as this is an independent asset.

It is important to transfer your domain out before cancelling your Yola subscription as this is how you get access to the transfer process. Once it is transferred you can then cancel your Yola account.

To transfer your domain away from Yola please see this tutorial: Transfer your domain to a new domain registrar. The transfer process may take 2 weeks to complete before you have access to your domain with your new host.

You can delete your website before cancelling your Yola subscription by Un-publishing your site and Delete one of your sites. Once you've deleted a site there really isn't a way to recover it so tread confidently.
