I have just finished building a website for a friend, still in the "Yolasite" stage
If my friend opens an account with you is it possible for me to transfer the site to there account.

Hello Steve,

The mechanics of this are probably able but Yola doesn't offer this service as such. It would require intervention by the staff (? engineers) at Yola and so not offered. You can transfer accounts to another but generally not sites. If you only have one site in your account then the solution is easy. Just change the details to your friends details and it will work.

If you have multiple sites then this won't work so your options are to recreate the site in another account registered to your friend then you can just advise your friend of the login details and they can continue on seamlessly. This is the Yola suggestion as well.

Many thanks for your reply
I have multiple sites on my account so it would not be possible

I will have my friend open an account with you then rebuild the site
Thanks again

Gop is correct Steve. If rebuilding the site will be difficult (i.e. it is a very large, developed) we can ask our engineers to assist you as a one time courtesy. Please be sure to always create separate accounts for your clients going forward.

Hi Laura
Thanks for you post and assistance

This is only a small site at the moment, 5 pages,

www.rebeccajoycebubblybex.yolasite.com

and it can be rebuilt on another account.

Thanks again,

Excellent service
