Well youve come to the right place.

Yola offer the free website, the free hosting and free subdomains.

There is no such thing as a free Top Level Domain name (unless you use .tk) but .tk domains include adverts (aka its not free).

What you can use is a free Yola subdomain. eg. yoursite.yolasite.com This works better than .tk's in my opinion.

If you need any help setting it all up just ask.

Lee.

Absolutely, when you click the yellow Publish Site button you will be able to choose to publish to a free Yola subdomain. Please let us know if you have any further questions regarding this.

If you are seeing the "Update My Site" button it means that your site is already published. I am glad to see that you are making such rapid progress!

You might not be able to build a site quite as complex as www.9goods.com, but here is a link to our tutorial on building your online store: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/creatin...

If there are any other specific tasks you need help with, tell us what they are and we will do our best to advise you.

Well a sub domain that has your address?! I dont think others would come to our site, they'll think its a fake and its a hack!

If you may give it or represent it in another way...
LIKE MAKING DOMAIN .COM/ORG OR NET FREE
then that what makes you level high!
And thanks...

Hi there Jamie,

I don't quite understand you...

Are you wanting to re-make your site? You can do this quite easily... If you would like to unpublish your site you can do so as follows:

1. Click on the down-arrow next to the yellow "Update My Site" button.
2. Click on "Publishing settings".
3. Click on "Unpublish your Site".

You will be asked to confirm that you wish to unpublish your site. Click on "OK" and your site will be unpublished.

You can then re-make your site and publish it.

If you are wanting to change your domain you are going to unfortunately have to purchase another.

With regards to your other site if you are wanting to change the look of your menu or add a side menu you may have to look at changing your style.

The way the menu is positioned on the page is a feature of the style you've selected. There is a way around it that may suit you:

1. You can take your pages out of your menu (click on the "Edit Menu" button and drag the pages from "in menu" to "out menu" - this will hide your default menu).
2. Create your own page links and place where you'd like this new menu to show up. This can be done by adding text, highlighting it and clicking on the link button on the text toolbar above.
3. Link your text to the specific page.

We have two tutorials that will help in explaining this process:

* Creating Links
* Creating Sub pages

Please note that the menu is a feature of the style you select. If it is not working for you, you may need to consider changing styles. We have a link to your support page which has a style guide: Yola Style Guide which has a handy filter function for you to see which style you might like.

If you would like to add a logo to your banner area you can do this by adding a banner to your page as follows:

1. Click on directly on the banner image on your page. This will cause the banner editing menu to pop up.
2. A dialog box will open up that will allow you to browse your computer for an image or choose an image from the File Manager.
3. Once you select your image the banner editor will open up.
4. You will now be able to crop and resize your banner image.
5. Once done, click on OK and your banner image will be added to your page.
6. Click on "Save" for the banner image to be saved to your page.
7. You have the option to apply this image to all current and future pages of your site by selecting the "Apply to All" option from the banner editing menu.

I hope this helps.

Hi There peeabba,

I think that you want a custom domain without the Yola Sudomain included.
It is always better to use yola's system, but if you need it here is a free domain hoster you could use.
