To publish your site to a custom domain, you need to purchase a hosting package. Yola offers three hosting packages: Yola Bronze, Yola Silver and Yola Gold.
If you select an annual hosting subscription, you are entitled to one free* domain for one year! To get started, please select your hosting subscription from our Yola Packages page. Then, you'll see a dialog box open up, prompting you to choose your desired domain and check its availability.
- *If you want a domain that is not .com, you will need to pay the price difference. For example, if you wish to have a .org domain, the cost of this is $14.95. A .com domain costs $11.95. As a result, you will need to pay the difference of $3.00.
- You can purchase a hosting subscription on a monthly basis but this option will not include a free* domain.
Once you have purchased a hosting package, there is no limit to how many additional domains you can purchase and publish to. Having a hosting subscription also allows you to publish your sites to externally-managed domains.
Free domain privacy is also included for one year when you redeem your custom domain along with your annual hosting subscription. In addition, when you purchase annually, it works out that you get two months for free included in your hosting subscription. For more information on our packages and payment options, visit our Pricing page.
Once you have completed your purchase, your subdomain will automatically redirect to your new address (www.example.com). This way, you won't lose the value of any links or visitors that only know your old location and they'll see your new domain.
