Hello Cheryl

I'm wondering if you have not yet published your site? To publish your site, click on the green "Publish to the web" button at the top of the page. You will be given three choices for publishing your site:

1) You can buy a custom (or dotcom) domain name from Yola. The cost is US$19.95 per domain per year, and includes automatic setup and hosting. In this case, your website's address will look like this: www.yourdomain.com, www.yourdomain.net, www.yourdomain.org or www.yourdomain.biz - the choice is yours. To purchase a custom domain name through Yola, select the "Get a custom domain" option.

2) Publish your site using a free Yolasite subdomain name. In this case your website's address will look like this: http://yourdomain.yolasite.com/. To publish to a free subdomain name, click on "Get a Yola subdomain", type the domain name you would like to use into the box provided.

3) You can publish your site using a domain name that you already own. If you have a domain you have purchased elsewhere, please click here for a tutorial on how to set it up to point to your Yola website: Publish to a domain you already own.

You may also be interested in the Yola Silver package which includes:

* A custom domain name (including private registration).
* A credit to create your own logo for your website through our partnership with HP.
* A credit for a Premium Style
* Yola links removed from all your websites.

For more information on this Package please see: Yola Silver FAQ.

For a step by step video on how to publish your site to a professional and standard domain, please see: Publishing to professional and standard domain or to publish to a domain you already own, please see: Publish to an external domain.

I hope this answers your question. Please let me know if it does not.
