The website for building is called yola.com, when it was called synthasite- it had the name!! ex: 'abcd.synthasite.com'
But now that the site name is smaller, can't it just be 'abcd.yola.com'? Its smaller, and faster to write!

Hi there Abby.rath13

There are 2 reasons we only offer subdomains with yolasite.com instead of yola.com.

1. To improve network security, the domain yola.com, will be used strictly for our systems that power official yola.com websites.
2. To make it more difficult for fraudsters to create phishing sites with our tools, we need to separate our domain name from those available to our users.

I hope this helps.

and to reserve subdomains for yola's use only? blog.yola.com for example.

Hi Jeremy,

Thanks for that answer. Now it all makes sense.
