I published a website on Yola 2 years ago. The domain name has expired and I wish to have the website back on the web now. Please let me know if I need to purchase the original domain name through yola, or if I can purchase it else where. Also, once I have purchased the domain name again, how do I reload my website?

Hello Barbara

Your domain has expired, but the good news is that it is available again, and no one has taken it, so you can still buy it again!

In your Yola account there are still all websites that you built with Yola, they're just not published. So you don't need to reload your site, the only thing you need to do is purchase your domain from Yola, add the hosting package that you want, and then publish your website to your domain in Sitebuilder.

Please see our Tutorial Buy your own domain from Yola to get more information on how to buy your domain and what the different hosting packages offer.

If you have any other questions, please post here again.
