HEY QUICK QUESTION ABOUT BUYING A DOMAIN NAME ETC.
Hey, If I buy a professional domain name (without the Yola thing beside it) and I buy the private registration detail...does that take EVERYTHING which has Yola off my webpage? or is that only to keep my name, address, private??
ALSO...if I register for one year only...can I register it AGAIN...or does I loose it after a week??

So in summary..if I buy the professional domain name (20 $) and the private buy (10) does that tak EVERYTHING which says Yola..etc of my site?? and if I register for one year can I continue to register??

well.. you can continue to register the website as much as you want. I'm thinking though (just a guess) that if your domain name expires (purchased from Yola) then it reverts back to your subdomain or unpublishes (not sure about this) until you renew. Probably, if you don't renew before the expiration, I'm thinking someone else would be able to take it from you. But this can be avoided by purchasing another year before the expiration of your annual domain. If you're going to spend $10 to remove the yola link at the bottom of the website, you're already spending $30. I would personally recommend spending the extra $20 and getting yola pro. By purchasing yola pro you get your own domain, the yola link comes off, you get an extra 20 sites, you get an extra 120 GB storage, you get credits for different programs such as Stock Photography (I'm guessing on this) and much more benefits.

Hi Donald,

Just quickly want to point out to you that Yola Pro does not include a custom domain. That still needs to be purchased separately.

Yola Pro includes:

* The ability to create up to 25 sites in your account.
* Individual file uploads of up to 100MB
* Total storage of 5GIG per site and 125GIG for 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.

Thanks for your great input though, just wanted to clarify that Yola Pro does not include a custom domain.

ok... as you could probably tell... I wasn't sure about everything... I'm to poor for yola pro... I earned $25 in 7 months with google adsense LOL...

that was my mistake...

I plan on buying yola pro though when I have the extra money, and I already have a custom domain too!

other than the free website with yola link at the bottom, I don't know what other advertisements there would be. Paying to remove the yola link will remove that link yes.

Hi Ali,

The private registration that you are mentioning, is specifically to keep your personal registration details private when it comes to other people doing a WHOIS search on your domain when they want to see who owns it.

Once you have purchased your domain, you are welcome to renew it for a further period of time before it expires. Yola will also send you notifications when your domain is close to expiring, to remind you to renew.

Removing the Yola Link from your website is a separate product that you can purchase.

Site building and hosting with Yola is free of charge, and the link you refer to is what allows us to keep it that way.

In order to keep the price of both Domains and Yola Link Removal as low as possible, they are sold separately. This allows you to decide whether you only want to purchase one, or both.

You have the option to pay to remove the Yola Link for all the sites in your account for 9.95 USD per year.

For more information, see: Yola Link Removal FAQ.

I hope this information is helpful to you. If you have any further questions, please let me know.

I don't think yola currently offers purchasing additional space except through yola pro but one day may become available. You most likely won't need that much more space than is provided and by the time you do need more space, you'll probably have enough money to buy yola pro. Your website has an unlimited bandwidth space... the storage limit of 1 GB per site is simply for what's in the file manager. It'll take a long time to fill that 1 GB storage. I have probably over a hundred pictures and other things in my file manager and only at about 15 MB. that's approximately 1.45% of the total space with about 100 pictures. Also, there's tricks to the trade as well. I will often have bmp images on my computer that I put onto my website. Changing the image extension is possible in yola file manager. But... what you want to do is change it before you upload it to yola. BMP is the largest image file as far as I know. I can change something from .bmp to a .png and a file 120 KB large will be about 15 KB after the change. But... if you change the file extension after it's in yola, the size will remain the same.

wow thank you all for the information...and just since I have you both here...what are the chances for someone doing a WHOIS and finding out where you live...becuase I bought a 30 dollar web design, and now the domain name is another 20, and the private is another 10, and removing the link is another 10,...so if possible i would like to keep it as cheap as possible

I don't necessarily like taking business away from yola... but sometimes a happy saving money customer is a better customer.....

If you purchase a domain from other sources, you can probably find it for less than $20...

I paid (well... my mom's bf paid) for a domain name for me from godaddy.com and certified it through them and only paid a total of $13.86. It also comes with an email client associated with your website.

a WHOIS shouldn't pull up a physical address right? I just did a whois for luara and didn't see anything of such for any of the results.

Hi Ali,

If you have bought a Premium Style, the Yola link will be removed from your site for this style.

You just saved $10!
