Sure, add this html code to the site you want to redirect:

<script type="text/javascript">
var siteurl="<b>The url of the site you want to redirect to godaddy</b>";
if(self.location==siteurl)
{
self.location="<b>Godaddy site url</b>";
}
&lt;/script&gt;

This code will prevent you from redirecting on the sitebuilder, but will redirect on the actual site.

Hi Saad,

You can edit your DNS settings so that your domains point to GoDaddy. This means that you will still get a renewal reminder from us once your domain comes up for renewal. If this is what you are trying to accomplish, please view this tutorial: DNS for your domain purchased from Yola..

Hello, you can set all of your domains in your website on the "Domains" page and then make the GoDaddy domain the primary domain and they will all redirect to the GoDaddy domain name! I will provide step-by-step instructions and screen shots if you want :)

Hello Valerio,

I suggest contacting GoDaddy for further assistance. I would send them an email saying something along the lines of:


"Dear [name of your 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: "184.72.229.176". The A Records will need to be setup to support the address with and without "www".


I hope they will be able to assist. Please remember to use your external domain, you need to upgrade to Yola Silver to take advantage of this feature. Otherwise, you can transfer your domain to Yola so that we become your domain registrar.

How can I redirect my recently purchased Yola domain to a Wix.com site I have built? Basically the Yola domain is a vanity domain and should redirect to the content on another website I have buildt.

Thanks,
Joe

Hello Joe,

To do this you need to make changes within the DNS Management facility of your Yola purchase domain..
The tutorial: Changing the name servers steps you through the procedure.

The 2 Wix name server info's you will need are:

  1. ns1.wix.com IP address: 216.139.213.90

  2. ns2.wix.com IP address: 207.36.47.9

Hi Joe,

Or if you would like to keep your vanity url with Yola, you could also do a page redirect by placing the following code into an HTML wiget at the top of the relevant page that you want to redirect to your Wix site.

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="3; url=http://YourSite" />

Where 3 is the time in seconds and YourSite is the URL of your Wix website.
