(Please look at Stefan's reply... mine is now somewhat obsolete)

- Make sure you have published your Website from Yola... If you did it then try going to your website by just typing your URL/Domain on the Address Bar... if you can view it on your Web-Browser then your website is online!

- Make sure you have added your Website to Common Search Engines like Google, Bing, etc.. Otherwise you wont be able to locate it via Google Search...

- Please note that Search Engines may take some time to Index your website in their database.. it usually takes a few days or weeks... sometimes even months!

- Make sure your website has some "good" contents, a few backlinks and of course, more Traffic... this will speed up the process of adding and indexing your Website to the search engine's database

Hope this helps :)

Hello Lea

Your website is offline because your domain expired in January 2013. We sent you multiple e-mails to remind you of renewing your domain, and another e-mail to let you know that your domain has expired. It's now no longer registered under your name, locked, and still in a waiting period to become available for resale. This period is usually 2-3 months after expiry. To get it back, you can regularly check within your Yola account if it is available again, and then repurchase it.
