Hello Jake,

If you have already bought a domain somewhere else, you can use it to publish your site, but you will need to configure it yourself as the method for doing so varies from registrar to registrar. You will need to log in to your account with your domain registrar and create 2 A Records (Address Record) to point to this IP address: One A Record for WWW and another one for @.

We have a tutorial outlining the steps to configuring your domain: Publish to a domain you already own . You can also transfer your domain to Yola so that your domain is managed through us: Tutorial: Transferring your domain to Yola.

For more indepth instructions for a few specific domain registrars please click on this link: Domain Configuration with GoDaddy, & other domain registrars.

I hope this helps.
