If you need support from Yola please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org or make use of our live chat service! We are working on a new approach to community-based support and during this transition period we are not adding any new threads to this forum. Many thanks to everyone who has participated over the years and we look forward to unveiling a new peer-to-peer support system soon!
WHEN I PUBLISH MY WEBSITE TO YOLA I FIND A QUESTION TAG ATTACHED UNDERNEATH STATING MY WEBSITENAME.COM IS STILL UNPUBLISHED AND THAT I SHOULD CLAIM IT NOW. DOES THIS NOT MEAN SOME ONE ELSE CAN STEAL MY NAME OR BETTER STILL THAT YOLA DOES NOT PROVIDE ANY PROTECTION AS SUCH.
Until you buy the domain it is open for anyone to legally purchase. Once it's purchased then it is yours. A domain name isn't the same as a business name registration even though it may be argued that.
Yola do sell domains as a sub-agent but they have no control over ownership or the rules that govern the protection of domain names.
