Considering Gold package but need clarification

I like the idea that I can create up to 25 websites with the silver and gold package, but when I create 25 sites, do I have to pay any additional charges to have them hosted or is hosting part of the price of the montly silver and gold plan for each of those sites. I don't like hidden charges and would like to know before I sign up.

Also can you confirm that the silver package has no SEO at all and only the gold?

Hi Martin,

Hosting is included with all of the websites included in our packages. The only cost that is separate is if you wanted a custom domain name. Each domain name would need to be purchased separately however custom domain names are not required to publish and host your websites as you are welcome to publish to a free .yolasite subdomain.

Yola Silver does not include any of our custom SEO tools such as Local Boost and Traffic Builder, those are only included in Yola Gold. These tools are extremely useful to help take out the guesswork when optimizing your website for search, but that doesn't mean you are not able to optimize a Yola Free, Bronze or Silver website to perform well in search engines. Yola Gold just makes it much easier and lass confusing!

Thank you for the clarification. If I have my own domain names do I still have to purchase through you or can I link them to my yola websites at no additional charge?...or is there an additional charge if I have my own and point them to your servers?

Also is there a site search widget planned or is there one available now?

Hello Martin,

Once you have your hosting subscription (Silver as you have mentioned) then you are free to point your domains to Yola and publish your site(s) to these pointed domains. See the tutorial Publish to a domain you already own

Site search Adding and editing content then scroll down to section #22 and you will see 2 tutorials for this requirement
