Hi Veronica,

Site building and hosting with Yola are completely free of charge. There are no subscription fees and we do not put any pop up ads on your site. We even give you a free subdomain name to publish your site to.

Here are some instructions that may help you to get started. After you log in to your account:

1. You will be taken to a page that will allow you choose a design for your site. When you have decided on a style click on the "Next" button. You will then be asked to give your site a name. At this point you will also be asked to choose whether you want a webpage or a blog page. If you aren't sure choose a webpage to start with, it's easy to add a blog page later.
2. You can now chose to select a website address immediately (click on the "Choose a Web Address" button if you wish to do this), this will take you to a page where you can publish your site. You can publish your site to a free subdomain name. Follow the steps to publish your site. If you don't wish to select a website address just yet, you can click on the button that says "Skip and start building" and you will be taken to a page where you can build your site.
3. Once you have either chosen a website address or chosen to go direct to building your site you will be taken to a page where you can start building. In the "Content" sidebar at the right of your screen, there are widgets. Widgets allow you to add things such as text (writing) and pictures onto your webpage. You add these to your page by clicking on them with your mouse and then, holding the button of your mouse down, dragging them across the screen. If you are doing it properly a grey image of the widget will move across the page. When the widget is over the page let go of your mouse button. You will then be able to start editing the widgets to add content such as text, images and videos. What is a Widget? -
4. If you want to make a new page click on "New Page" (the third button from the right above your page), you will be asked to give the new page a name, then you can add content to it using the widgets.
5. When you are happy with your site click "Publish" if you have not already done so and you will be taken through the steps to publish your site. Your site will be live as soon as you publish it. If you selected your web address when you created your site, simply click the yellow "Update My Site" button.
6. If you want to make changes to your site after you have published it, it's very easy to do, just log in to your account and open your site. You will be able to make all the changes you want. Don't forget to update (repubish) your site at the end of each session.
