Hi brooks,

You can find all the information to hosting your site outside of Yola on this link: http://www.yola.com/customer-support/....

Please note that if you elect to host your site elsewhere, we can only support you with the process of creating your site, and downloading it. Thereafter all support relating to the hosting of your site will become the sole responsibility of your service provider.

The site you built will always be available in your Yola account for editing and updating even if you download your site as a zipped file and host it elsewhere. However, to put your changes live you would need to re-download your site and re-upload it to the servers of your hosting provider each time. If you host your site with us (either using a free subdomain or a domain of your own) you can update it with a single click - so it is a lot easier to make changes.

If you would like to rather point your GoDaddy domain to Yola so that your site is hosted with us (for free) and you can update it easily, please take a look at this tutorial: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/publish....

I hope that helps! Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Hi brooks,

You can certainly download your Yola site and host it with another host - we have more information on this link: http://www.yola.com/customer-support/....

If you have a domain that you've purchased from GoDaddy, you can rather point it to Yola so that it's easier to update your site (you don't have to download it each time you make a change) and hosting with Yola is free. More info on this link: http://www.yola.com/customer-support/...

For information on adding a forum, click on this link: http://www.yola.com/customer-support/...

If you would like to setup email addresses with a domain purchased elsewhere, you will need to contact your domain host as we do not have access to your domain's settings. If you've purchased a domain from Yola, you can setup your email addresses by following the steps on this link: http://www.yola.com/customer-support/...

I hope that helps! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
