Hello Emmanuel,

If you have purchased more than one domain on Yola or purchased from another domain registrar and pointed it to Yola, you can easily assign (publish) these domains to one of your sites by accessing the Advanced Domain Settings. For more information and steps, please take a look at this link: Assigning domains and creating a primary domain"

Please note: If you have a domain purchased from another domain registrar, it will need to point to Yola in order to work. Steps available here: Publish to a domain you already own

I hope this helps. Cheers!

Hi, but, I don't see an option to add more than one domain purchased else where to one Yola site. Is this possible?

Nathan, here is a screenshot of where you have the option to add multiple domains to your Yola site. I hope this helps you to understand how to point or transfer an externally purchased domain to Yola!

Hi Nathan,
Yes, you can add another externally purchased domain to your Yola website. By following the link above 'Assigning Domains and Creating a Primary', you will see the guidelines :

If you have pointed more than one domain purchased elsewhere to Yola and would like both to be published to the same site, follow these steps:

Login to your Yola account and make sure you are on the "My Sites" page.
Click on "Domains" on the left hand side.
Under "Add a domain you already own", click on "Want to keep your domain registered with another registrar?".
Fill in your domain name, choose the site you would like to publish it to and click on "Add".
Once added, you will be able to choose which domain is the primary domain and the one the other domain will redirect to.

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you need further assistance!
