Changes to free domain pointing feature

Hi Everyone,

As we had announced before we are making changes to our domain prices.  As part of this change on February 15, we will be removing the domain pointing feature for our free service.  What does that mean to you?  It means that if you’re using our free service after February 15th, you will no longer be able to point a domain purchased from another provider.  If you currently have a domain purchased from another provider you can always transfer your domain to Yola.   If you already have a published Yola site pointed to a domain, this feature will remain and your service will not be interrupted; however, we highly recommend that you consider transferring your domain.   It’s fairly easy and simple to do this.   If you are a Silver package subscriber, we will also continue to keep this feature for you.

For the last few months, we’ve been upgrading our hosting, security systems and features to protect your website from the threat of hackers and outages so when you transfer your domain with us you get a whole lot more:

  • Upgraded, state-of-the-art website protection
  • Premium quality hosting for round-the-clock care and fewer down times
  • Advanced global DNS management to quickly allow you to make domain changes yourself
  • Award-winning support team available 24/7
  • Instant setup gets your website online in no time

    Hello there,

    Quick question:
    will this change effect me and my site?

      Hi Thailea,

      This will not affect your free .yolasite subdomain. This only affects members who wish to purchase custom domains from another registrar and point it to Yola.

    Quite sad to hear about this removal, as Dot TK’ers like myself enjoyed having a website with Yola that didn’t deal with those annoying iframes. Ah well D:

    Extremely discouraging.

    I would like to know if I can keep my website published with Yola in case I renew my domain name with another domain seller… I’m happy with Yola, but saving some money means to me as well. Regards.

      Hi Khaled,
      You can use an externally purchased domain with your Yola website if you are a Yola Silver member.

  5. This is bullcrap. You idiots think we believe all of that upgrading stuff. You retards go from providing a free service to now charging a buttload of money. Nice going yola. I’m moving on to another webhosting company.

      We’re sorry you feel that way Mason. We are pleased to still offer a Free product but as we continued to develop our product, it did become necessary to charge for some services in part to help subsidize our free offering. If we no longer meet your needs, we wish you the best of luck with your new website provider.

  6. Have loved this site for a long time, thank you so much for the effort you put into each and every part of it.

    Hola! I’ve been following your web site for some time now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Austin Texas! Just wanted to tell you keep up the fantastic work!
