Anyway, the reason i joined Yola was because it was free, I didnt have to pay a penny to make a few sites. But now Yola have chosen to have a subscription fee to become a member, you have limitations. That makes me quite upset, I thought Yola was made to be free, maybe there were a few things that you could buy, such as domains. But I didnt expect it would get so far as real limitations. I do understand that you folks need some money. But when I think of Yola I think that its free and I can create as many sites as I like, I can upload lots of pictures, I can create a really funky looking site. What you have done now is made Yola less unique, maybe now I will go somewhere else to make a website....

Hey Dill,

Yola is still FREE. You can make 5 massive sites per account and still don't have to pay a penny. What's the problem??

Yes, but I could go to another website editing tool and create more than 5 free sites, with a gig of web space. I just think Yola has lost its "Free" uniqueness. Of course you can still make sites for free, but I like the idea of unlimited. I think Yola will not get as many users because it isnt "really" 100% free anymore.

I guess, hopefully Yola still keeps its small form to create an account...

Hi Dill,

Thank you for your post. I hope the information below will help.

The free Yola account includes:

* 5 sites per account.
* Storage of 1GIG per site and 5GIG per account.
* Individual file uploads of up to 15MB.
* Access to all the site building features.
* Free hosting for your site.
* The option to use a free subdomain or purchase a domain.

You can find more info on our FAQ page: http://www.yola.com/customer-support/....

If you would like to let me know what your site's URL is, I can tell you how much space you have used up already. Alternatively, log into the site builder and click on the Site Manager tab for that information.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

I understand free and I understand what is reasonable. It is one thing to come for a visit and never want to leave and it is another to come for a visit and help pay for groceries.I am very pleased with what I have received from Yola. Just the fact that they are willing to help with questions in a community setting is wonderful.
