Just wondering if I step up to Yola Pro, can I download my Yola sites into Dreamweaver so they can be tweaked and then upload the sites to my client's servers/ISPs?

This way I get the best of all worlds by using Yola's editor to build the basic site, then bringing it into Dreamweaver for further customization (if needed) before releasing the site to my client's own ISP.

Also - if I switch to Yola Pro will I get to keep the sites I currently have (the 5 free) plus another 20 new sites or will I have to create a new login for Yola Pro?

Hello Jane

While we do offer the option to download your site and host it elsewhere, we strongly urge you to consider hosting your site with us instead, for the following reasons:

1. It is far easier to make changes to your site after you publish it. All you have to do is click the "Update my Site" button and your latest changes will be instantly applied to your live site. If you host your site elsewhere you will have to repeat the download/upload process each time you want to make a change to your website.
2. No technical difficulties! It just works! Uploading your site to your own webhost is technically complicated and may be a daunting process if you are not familiar with it.
3. We can offer you full support for every aspect of building and publishing your site. Support is available 24/7. If you host elsewhere, all support related to the hosting of your site becomes the responsibility of your hosting provider. We will not be able to assist you if problems arise as we do not have access to your hosting environment.
4. A team of experts provides excellent uptime for your published sites. Even when the site builder goes down for maintenance, your published sites remain up. If anything unforseen does go wrong, the Yola team will respond quickly and effectively to solve the problem.

In regards to switching to Yola Pro - Your free account will upgraded which allows you to keep your current 5 sites and you will be given an additional 20 more - to create a total of 25 sites in your account. A new login is not needed.

I hope that answers your questions. Please let us know if further clarification is needed.

Thank you Sanja - you have answered a lot of my questions this weekend. Does Yola Pro have any kind of free trial period? Also - do you consider your company green? If so, in what way (do I need to open a new discussion thread for this?)

Hi Jane - Unfortunately Yola Pro does not offer a trial period option.

About the green question - in all honesty I am not sure what that means in our context. Can you explain a little more what you mean by it, and I will answer to the best of my ability?

Well - there are some web hosts/editors out there who are promoting themselves as being green. They make mention of how they seek to use alternative energy sources (wind/solar/etc) and their paperless efforts, and how they are working to diminish their carbon footprint. Sometimes the green stuff is lipservice, but other times there can be meaningful examples. Just curious if Yola is addressing this in any way.

Thanks for the added detail. I can say that as an internet company our paper usage is extremely low and we recycle office waste. We haven't looked into alternative fuel sources yet. So I wouldn't say that we are at the point where we can market ourselves as a green company but this is something we can look at addressing as it is a very important issue.
