Quotation for upgrade

  • Question
  • Updated 6 years ago
Hello . I have a web site womandevelopmentgroup.yolasite.com and I want a quotation please for upgrading this so that a) it is not linked to me email address but instead to somebody elses b) change the domain name to not include yola in the name and c) make it google aware. I need to take this quotation amount and get budget approval and then we can pay. I am working in South Sudan where nobody has credit cards and so although I can pay the bill on line , it would be good if there was another way to pay any ongoing amounts eg bank transfer from Kenyan Commercial Bank - Thanks very much - Neil

Hello Neil

Thank you for your questions. Here are the answers:

1. Different account e-mail
No matter if you have a free or paid account, you will always be able to change the account e-mail address. Once done, this will mean that the new e-mail address must be used to log in next time. Please note: Yola regards the owner of the login e-mail address as the owner of the Yola account it is associated with. In order to avoid account ownership conflicts, we'd strongly recommend to check carefully who you give access to your Yola account in whatever way. For each Yola account you can only have one login e-mail address and one password.

2. Customizing your domain name
We're excited to hear that you're ready to take your account to the next level by using a custom domain! To publish your Yola website to a custom domain, you will need to add one of our hosting packages, Yola Bronze, Yola Silver, or Yola Gold. For a short overview please see our Pricing page. If you have any questions on our packages, please let me know.

3. Google/SEO for your website
If you're looking for tools to improve the search engine optimiziation performance of your Yola website, the best way to do this would be to choose Yola Gold as your hosting package. It includes the option to do SEO scans of your website, build traffic, and submit your website to local online directories.

4. Payment Methods
Yola currently offers to pay via credit card or PayPal. If you don't have a credit card, please use PayPal which offers other payment methods, such as direct debiting, etc. We can only provide the credit card or PayPal option.

Please let me know if you have more questions, and I'll be happy to assist you further.

Hi Stefan
Many thanks for your clear reply

I also saw somewhere that for around $499 Yola would create a web site and I wondered if this would include taking what I have done at womandevelopmentgroup.yolasite.com and making it look much more professional.

My dilemma is that being in a country - South Sudan (Note not Sudan which you may not be able to trade with) I can make one off payment eg for redesign, new domain, upgrade to B/S/G and pay by my credit card but after I leave in perhaps 1 year the people who will be left to support it are locals with no credit cards, pay pal accounts etc. So I am looking to pay more upfront - which I can reclaim - and less ongoing

Thanks very much
Neil

Hi Neil

It's a pleasure. Yes, we do offer Yola Premier, which means that a professional designer will create your website (5 pages) according to your requirements. They will use the Yola Sitebuilder to do that, and once they're done, you will be able to go on building your website on your own, update things, add more pages, etc. The current price is US$ 499.95 for the first year, which includes the designing and Yola Silver. From the second year on your account will be Yola Silver which renews at the annual price of US$ 99.95.

If you purchase Yola Premier, one of our designers will contact you via telephone, and you can tell them how you want your website to be. I think it will be possible to add content from your existing website, but I'm not sure if they will be able to build on your existing website. Yola Premier is designed as a kickstart of a website, so they may only build one for you from scratch. Please let me know if you need a more reliable information on this before you purchase Yola Premier, and I'll find out for you.

I'm afraid that with regard to our payment methods, you might be in a dilemma indeed. The only payment methods we offer are credit cards or PayPal. Yola is a subscription service with recurring billing, and I'm sorry that as such we are not able to assist customers who are not in a position to use either of these payment options.
