On January 31, 2012, Microsoft announced that it will discontinue the OfficeLive free website hosting and storage service. There are a lot of the website builders out there Word Press and Yola make it incredibly fast and easy to replace your OfficeLive website. You can buy a domain name from GoDaddy.com and be up and running in a few days. The folks at office live have also made it way easier to transition your domains to another provider. I use GoDaddy.com and they make it pretty easy to transfer a domain to them. I personally have two sites in OfficeLive (http://pradviser.net and http://retailsecrets.net) and now I have to migrate them to another content management system. I recommend all current OfficeLive users to migrate their sites to Yola.com. I have been a Yola Silver customer for almost three years I have over seven websites in Yola and I must tell you it is far better than OfficeLive and way easier to use!
- Easy user interface - Html and Text WYSIWYG widgets - Google Adsense integration
- Preview before Publishing - Easy Navigation editing - Google Analytics Integration
|This is the actual Yola user interface. As you can see it is easier to use and there is more options to enhance pages.|
Although Yola is free for up to 5 websites with free hosting and limited file storage you are much better off buying the Yola Silver Package if you plan to launch more than one website. With the silver package you can build 25 websites, plus receive a free custom domain, 5 GB of storage, premium phone and email support, unlimited premium templates (which are usually way more customizable headers and site backgrounds) Plus, Get FREE advertising credits worth $100 with every Yola Silver purchase.
