How can I upload my own design rather than using a Yola template? I do need the URL, I bought it through synthasite.

Hello Rene,

Unfortunately at this time it is not possible to upload your own template into the Yola Site Builder. One of our Champs, littleus, gave a really great response to another Yola customer who had this same question that includes lots of ideas to make any style your own.

Here is a link to the thread: Using Own Template.

If you have further questions please let us know!

Hi,
Sorry, but I just can't get the results I want in Yola so far. I just want to design my own site and upload it. But how can I get my own url? It's my name, so I need it. I'll host it somewhere else with my own design if necessary, but I don't know how to go about it. Basically my question is: how do I get my URL to do with how I please? Or can I at least get it and move it to another webhost?

Hi Rene

If you'd like to have your own url, you can buy a domain with Yola for $20 USD/year. Here's a tutorial of how you can achieve this: http://www.yola.com/customer-support/...

For now, you cannot upload a template, but you can take a blank template and do a lot of stuff to make it your own. Please take a look at what people have done at http://forsite.synthasite.com or http://www.yola.com/featured_sites

I've been able to create two sites which are comletely different in look:

http://littleus.yolasite.com & http://dejavuapparel.yolasite.com

Please let us know if you have further questions.

Hi Rene,

There are a few different ways to do things if you would like to build a site elsewhere and use a domain name that you have purchased from Yola. If you would like to email me at support@yola.com I can assist you with this.

Kind Regards,
Emmy
