if you're referring to publishing it on the web, you don't have to. Go to update my site and select the use yola subdomain free option. If you want a custom domain (rather than subdomain) then most likely you will have to pay for it. My certified dot com costed $13.86 and my dot info someone else got it for me but I'm thinking costed less than $2.00.

dot info I think is generally cheaper than dot com. Yola offers the domain names and could be the better option because you can do everything through yola but is generally more expensive.

Hello Kevin,

You can publish your site to a free subdomain!

1. Click on "Publish Site"
2. Click on "Choose Standard"
3. Type the domain you would like to use in the box provided
4. Then if it is available follow through the prompts until your site is published

Your site will be available immediately on the internet!

Kind Regards,
