Hello everyone and thank you for your time for reading this.

Most likely that new members here don't know me but I still can remember one of my favorite members here, Nathan, Monique, c2print, Clouda9 and Donald. Apologies if you know me and I missed your name.

Here is my story with Yola :)

It was 2009 or 2008, I can't remember exactly, I joined Yola after testing some other free site builders. I had a little knowledge over HTML stuff but it was very limited.
I don't want to mention my first web site builder's name here but it gave me MUCH pleasure that I own piece of content over the Internet.

Later, I realized that I should find a better builder just because of MY LIMITED knowledge.

Then, I ended up here at Yola and it was a whole new experience.

I'm not from a rich family and I was still a student. No PC but I had a fair mobile phone to do most of the things. But Yola site builder was no mobile-friendly so I spent most of the time learning things in Yola forum.

I was a n00b and I can remember how much staff members like Monique and other people helped me. I still have those emails and they are really worth keeping forever.

I was interested in free domains , .tk specifically, and I needed to test it out. I could! It was my mind impression for several days. I was helping many of the others to get the DNS done in return.

I must say about a nice person I met here. She's from NY and we have a great friendship and she has helped me a LOT of times.

Later I got some wild ideas about php and other CMSs so I started to discover them.
Now, I'm a web developer working for a well known branded company and I have come many times to see what's going on.
I found that Yola isn't allowing you to use custom domains on free plans but the awesomeness is still there.

So I wish you all a beautiful future and wish you all the best or your ventures.
Trust me: web developing is really fun that's one of the easiest way to get the happiness thinking someone is using my site and he/she is getting something useful from my work.

Thank you all of you for your support to build my life.
If anyone here needs a CSS html or php-related help, just ask me and I will try help you to figure it out.

Enjoy the work, and that's how to go for success :)

Hi SilverX,
Thank you for sharing your history with us. That is right, there is a lot of people who don't know about styling css, html or other things. I learned a lot of things from here too like you did.
