Most Helpful Positive User Review
“I used Yola for my hosting (I own a painting company). I loved it. It’s simple to use and good enough for me. I thought it was difficult to figure out how to quit because there was no quit button. I had to email them but they told me where to do it and how. Customer service was excellent.”
— Jeff Paul

Yola offers a free plan that comes with two websites, three web pages, and 1 GB of storage. However, Yola branding will appear on the sites and Yola subdomains will be used for the website addresses. Their Bronze package — at $6.95 per month — comes with unlimited pages, five websites, and custom domain options.
If you want to get rid of Yola branding so you can personalize your websites, the Silver and Gold packages — priced at $14.95 and $29.95 respectively — are options you can consider.

The small jump from the free plan to the Bronze Plan gives you a free custom domain, extra 1GB storage, unlimited bandwidth, and unlimited pages — but still with Yola branding. The Silver and Gold Plans provide options for advanced HTML and CSS template editing, mobile-ready websites, and website publishing on Facebook. If you want help with your website’s search engine optimization, the Gold plan also includes SEO services. All of their paid plans are discounted if you choose to opt for annual billing.
Best Pricing Option for Small Business Owners
If you want a simple, functional, and aesthetically-pleasing website that is also optimized for mobile, the Silver Plan could be the best option for you. It’s twice the price of the Bronze Plan, but you get more features and more freedom to customize your website.
