why is the sub domain called 'yolasite' and not just yola?

Hello HipHopTweaker,

You asked a great question. This is an answer that our Head of Customer Support provide when asked this:

There are 2 reasons we only offer subdomains with .yolasite.com instead of .yola.com.

1. To improve network security, the domain yola.com, will be used strictly for our systems that power official yola.com websites.
2. To make it more difficult for fraudsters to create phishing sites with our tools, we need to separate our domain name from those available to our users.

This is something we learned from our experience of allowing users to publish to synthasite.com and we wanted to avoid the same vulnerability with the rename. Many people have expressed concern over the security of our service and the measures we are taking to combat phishing and other forms of abuse. This is just one of many things we are doing to ensure this.


I hope this helps to clarify why we have done this.

Why don't you change your domain name to yolasite (because it is the actual domain of the site) and leave all the users just 'yola'? vise verse. should be a walk in the park.
