Do you offer .co.za web extensions as well. Can I use an existing domain name ending with .co.za? (South Africa)

Hi Piet

Yola does not currently offer .co.za domain extensions.

However, you are able to use an existing .co.za domain on Yola. Domain pointing is available to our Yola Silver subscribers. If you are not already a Yola Silver member, you will need to upgrade your membership in order to publish your website and take advantage of the other features of the package.

Follow the steps in the tutorial, Publish to a domain I already own, to point your .co.za domain to your Yola site.

Let us know if you need more help or have more questions related to .co.za domains.

Hello Chad,

Yola does not have name servers. Please take a look at this tutorial for information on how to get around this.

I hope that helps.

I have looked at that tutorial, but am not sure how to create an A record. The South African registrar says it is unable to help with this so I'm not sure how to do it

Hi Chad,

We have a tutorial called Publish to a domain you already own that you may find helpful.

We are not familiar with how all registrars work, however, I can suggest you send your registrar an email similar to this:

"Dear South African Registrar,

I have built a site using Yola.com and would like to point my domain name to them in order to publish my site. In order to point my domain to Yola, I need to use your name servers but set up two A records (address record) to point to: "". The A Records will need to be setup to support the address with and without "www".


I hope this is helpful for you, Chad. Please let us know how it goes for you.
