Hi Sylvia,

We have the steps to pointing your GoDaddy domain to Yola on this link: http://www.yola.com/customer-support/...

It's easier to point it to Yola and then publish your site than rather hosting the site with GoDaddy. If you choose the second option, you will need to re-upload the site to GoDaddy each time you make changes. If your domain is pointing to Yola then you can update your site by clicking on the "Publish to the web" button.

Please let us know if you need any other information.

Hello Sylvia,

Well you can take two paths here:

The first is to buy and host at GoDaddy. Their hosting service is more advanced but it also lets you have most server control and back edn options. But it is about $11.00 a month. On the other and, Yola will let you design a complete website where you don't have to worry about back end and it can be free for hosting. Of course there is the option to upgrade to Yola Pro, which allows you to upload some extra file types and more file space. So it boils down to this. Do you want to pay $121 a year for more back end control or $0 a year (or $50 if you decide to upgrade) for the design and looks?

I think, if you don't have experience with SSI then you should go with Yola. At least try them out, it is free!
