Yolasite.com now Available!

  • Announcement
  • Updated 3 years ago
Did you know, you can now publish your sites to a shiny new yolasite.com subdomain!

You will see this option when you log into your account on your "My Sites" page. You will either have the option to publish to the yolasite version of your current synthasite.com domain, or a new name of your choosing.



You can also access this option via the publishing settings dialog box by clicking on "change subdomain".



Please note:
1) Once you change your subdomain there is no way to revert back to a synthasite.com subdomain, so make sure you really want to do this. You will be asked to type in the word "change" to confirm your choice.
2) You can keep publishing to your synthasite.com subdomain forever if you have an existing site on that domain. However, no new sites can be published to synthasite.com.
3) If you decide to change your subdomain, all your traffic to your synthasite.com domain will automatically redirect.
4) We will reserve the yolasite.com version of your current synthasite.com domain for you until the 31st of May. For example, if you own moniquesite.synthasite.com only you will be able to publish to moniquesite.yolasite.com during this time. After the 31st your old name will be released for general use. We have done this to give everyone a fair chance to secure the yolasite.com version of their existing domains.
5) If you decide to change subdomains, you will need to reconfigure anything that is URL sensitive, such as Google Webmaster, Google Analytics, JS-Kit comments etc.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Hi there - I'm sorry to hear you are frustrated. Please could you post the URL that you are expecting to redirect so that we can take a look.

The bug we were experiencing with the "Edit Menu" has been fixed. I have just tested it on my side and it is working. Apologies if we have not yet notified the community but it was fixed a few hours ago.

I've just checked with one of my test sites (www.filetest.synthasite.com) and it directs to the new Yolasite domain. Are you sure you didn't unpublish by accident instead of changing the domain? Could you also let us know when you made the change so that I can try and find out more information on our side.

Is this site not yours?



If it isn't and acnet.synthasite.com was your domain, please can you send an email to support@yola.com (to my attention) so that I can try and find out what went wrong.

I understand that you are frustrated and I would like to help you. Is the picture of the site I've given above your site? If you could send us an email so that I can find out if there is a way we can add the redirect back onto your yolasite domain.

It is up to you if you want to change or not. If someone follows a link to your synthasite address they will automatically be redirected to your new yolasite address. However, if you have configured any widgets or services using your synthasite address you will have to redo these. You can keep using your synthasite address forever if you wish, so there is no obligation to change. However, once you change there is no way back, so this is something you should consider carefully and only make the switch if you are absolutely sure about it.

My sites have been changed to yola, so the files, sized by amount of content, would be smaller for downloads if I did decrease the letters. Every inch counts as they say! Linking the widgets is simple after replacing the files to link to. I have only started with my development here in yola, so now would be the best time to do so I think! Accually, I am still only getting the handle on page design at the moment. Just that I worry about yahoo closing my sites in geocities from where I need to get some of the data needed here in the yola sites. Just takes some time to go throught the 300, or so, files! Later additions will be the eazy part!

Then if you want to make the change, now sounds like the time to do it. Good candidates for a changeover are sites that are still in development where you haven't promoted your synthasite domain extensively yet, or used it to configure all sorts of widgets etc. It is a matter of preference I guess, so if you like yolasite more than synthasite then go for it!

Hi Jessica,

Here are some instructions that may help you to get started:

After you log in to your account:

1. Click on "Create New Site". You will be prompted to give your site a name and choose between a website page or a blog page.
2. Next select a style. Your site will be given a default style, but you can change it by clicking on the "Change Style" button in the tab at the top of your screen.
3. In the "Content" sidebar at the right of your screen, there are widgets. Widgets allow you to add things such as text (writing) and pictures onto your webpage. You add these to your page by clicking on them with your mouse and then, holding the button of your mouse down, dragging them across the screen. If you are doing it properly a grey image of the widget will move across the page. When the widget is over the page let go of your mouse button. You will then be able to start editing the widgets to add content such as text, images and videos. What is a Widget?
4. If you want to make a new page click on "New Page" (the third button from the right above your page), you will be asked to give the new page a name, then you can add content to it using the widgets.
5. When you are happy with your site click "Publish" and you will be taken through the steps to publish your site. Your site will be live as soon as you publish it.
6. If you want to make changes to your site after you have published it, it's very easy to do, just log in to your account and open your site. You will be able to make all the changes you want. Don't forget to republish your site at the end of each session.

For detailed, step-by-step instructions please search our help topics http://cs.synthasite.com/ or check the tutorials.http://www.yola.com/tutorials.html

My suggestion is that you start creating your site using our help topics and tutorials as a guide. Then, if you run into any particular problem, you are welcome to email us at support@yola.com and we will do our best to help you.

We are no longer reserving yolasite domains. This means that is someone has published to example.synthasite.com, but has not switched over to example.yolasite.com - you will not get an "available" message when you search for this domain.

So any old synthasite domains that have not been reserved are now added to pool of available Yolasite domains.

Hi abhishek

If you have not used Yola before, then, you'll need to go to www.yola.com and sign up. Then, you'll be taken directly to your site builder and you can start making your site.

If you've already signed up with Yola, then enter in your log in information. Then, you'll see a red button on the right-hand side that says "Create a new site". Click on that.

Please let us know if you have any problems.
