Advantages: Free and very easy to use. Support is also really good - both from the company itself and from the community of other users.
Disadvantages: Lack of scheduling for blog posts - both Wordpress and Blogger do this. Otherwise - no disadvantages at all.
Verdict: Really good service.

Easy to use host

Advantages: Easy to use
Disadvantages: Limited e-commerce features
Verdict: I have used Yola for about 10 months now. It is easy to build and edit a website. But the features are extremely limited. It does not support the use of a shopping cart, nor any of the features one would want to operate an online store. The only thing you can do is have generic paypal buttons, with no shipping configurations. If all you need for a web host is basic (I mean very basic) features, Yola is fine. But I'd look elsewhere, iPage is a good host. The have free shopping carts to use, such as Zen Cart, or OsCommerce.

Advantages: 100% Free, no ads, great support
Disadvantages: Can't think of any
Verdict: I've tried many free hosting, Yola is the first one that provide 100% free hosting without ads. They just add a little link to their site (which is fine). They provide great free website building tools and templates. Bottom line, I'm pleased with Yola and I recommend it to everyone.

Yola Expert Review- From the Editors

Originally known in 2007 as SynthaSite, Yola relaunched their services in 2009 under a new name. Offering free website design services and free and paid web hosting plans, Yola.com has offices in San Fransisco, CA and Cape Town, South Africa.

Review

Sales

I had a few questions about Yola’s Silver Plan and went looking for answers. Yola takes sales inquiries by email and by telephone. Upon calling the long distance number, I was directed to a second telephone number where I waited for only 1 munite for a sales representative to pick up, and then got all my questions answered, cool. On the other hand, Yola has an online forum where questions can be asked and also a thorough online database of commonly asked questions.

Setup

Yola offers immediate setup for both free hosting and paid accounts. Within seconds of purchasing a Yola Silver plan I had a welcome email in my inbox that thoroughly outlined my plan and gave me directions about how to set up my site and reach support. Additionally, once payment is completed, Yola takes you immediately into their site designer application so there’s no confusion about how to get started. Easy as can be!

Billing

Yola bills by the year and accepts major credit cards and PayPal. I had no trouble paying for my hosting account or cancelling it at year’s end.

Pricing

It’s difficult to compare Yola’s pricing structure to that of other hosts because of Yola’s impressive website builder and free templates are both included in the cost.

Yola’s Silver hosting package is $99.95 per year, which averages out to $8.33 a month. The Silver plan includes a free domain name and private registration, valued at over $40 a year, $75 worth of free advertising credits and a $50 credit for HP Logomaker. Not included in the cost is email, but that can be had for just $9.96/year. Considering the wide array of free templates, the phenomenal website builder and inclusion of a free domain name, Yola is a pretty good bargain overall. 

Reliability

Yola’s site builder is not the only aspect of their business that is impressive. Yola’s network and hardware proved exceptional, too. I didn’t have any issues with my server or the network during my yearlong stay.

Help & Support

Yola provides email and telephone support for up to three months to paid customers. Yola guarantees a response within 24 hours and they delivered each time. Those needing quick assistance should turn to the telephone, where the average wait time is only fifteen minutes, compared to up to a day for email responses.

Uptime

I employed a premium uptime monitor to keep track of my Yola-based website and it registered 100% uptime during my one year stay. Perfect!
