How do I get a site that ends with the .Synthasite.com extension? I noticed when I go to synthasite.com it redirects me to yola.com and I need to make a site with the synthasite extension.

Hello CoopersPick,

The Synthasite website has been re-branded into Yola.com. It's still offers all the same features that one had when we were formerly called "Synthasite" but with more bells and whistles.

Since our re-branding, it is no longer possible to publish to a .synthasite domain. You are still, however, able to publish to a free subdomain - .yolasite.com

I hope you can make use of the Yolasite subdomain. Please let us know if you have further questions.

Hi CoopersPick,

Sounds like you really want one! :) I don't know if it is even possible anymore for new sites to be able to have .synthasite.com domains even if you pay them. An employee will have more information about that.

Also, the reason why they aren't converting the current .synthasite.com ones is because those ones were registered back when Yola was called SynthaSite.

Kind regards,
Nathan

Hello CoopersPick,

When we changed our name from SynthaSite to Yola, we changed our subdomain so that all newly published sites would use yolasite.com. However, we allowed existing synthasite.com users to retain their subdomain or change voluntarily. Obviously it would be unfair to force users to change existing domains, but we also cannot continue offering both options for new publishers as this would create a great deal of technical overhead. Ideally we would like people to only use free subdomains while they are developing their sites and then upgrade to a custom domain as this is more professional and helps with search engine ranking.

If you're interested in getting a custom domain, we would like to assist with this. Could you please email support@yola.com, ATTN: Sanja.
