I don't think they offer a discount on Yola Silver......What is the cost for unlimited hosting where you bought the domain?

Just trying to show you how cheapest price is not always the cheapest price once you compare things as a whole.....I think Yola Silver is still $99.95? If so divide by 12 to see what your cost per month for hosting with unlimited bandwidth is...Remember that includes a domain name.....
Now look at the plans where the $10.00 domain is and look up their price on unlimited bandwidth hosting and compare overall price....Once you do that Yola compares very well .....Also Yola IMO has a great site builder and a community based customer service forum where you can pretty much find help any hour of the day.

I just upgraded to Silver and got my domain name :)

This was easy

Now when they say I can create 25 sites, does that mean any one of the 25 sites will not have the Yola ads and will have the same features as my original one had? the file uploads and stuff?

What about the domain name for that? I would have to purchase that separately or how does this work?

pls explain

Hello!

First of all - thanks to KanThaiDecor for assisting on this thread. Muchly appreciated.

Yola Silver is an account-level feature. This means that all your sites in that account will benefit from this package!

The only thing that does not apply to all sites is your domain. You are entitled to one free domain. If you wish to publish your other sites to custom domains, you will need to purchase this. You can either do this through us or through an external domain registrar. Since Silver includes free domain pointing, this means you can point any externally-bought domain to Yola.

I hope this information was helpful.
