Yola Customers:

We are proud to announce the launch of our user interface for advanced DNS management and email setup.

When you buy a domain you need to have control over that domain, and the ability to set up email addresses associated with your domain. In the past you needed to email support in order to accomplish this.

Today we are happy to introduce our shiny, new DNS management tool. You can now easily edit your own DNS settings.

The most exciting aspect of this tool is that you can now easily create email addresses for your domain. We have integrated with Google Apps (Gmail) to make setting up your email addresses even easier. Their basic package is free and you will be able to create up to 50 email addresses.

To access these screens, scroll to the bottom of your "My Sites" page and click the "Enable advanced domain settings" button.

We have three tutorials that explain this in detail:

Buying Your Domain From Yola
DNS For Your Yola Domain
Creating Email For Your Domain

A word of caution!
If you are not sure how to edit your DNS settings please review the tutorials before attempting to make any changes. If you are still unsure, please post your questions in this forum or contact Making an error could cause your site to become unavailable and we would hate for this to happen to you, so please get the help you need before you proceed. It is a lot easier to get it right the first time, than to fix it after it goes wrong!

Hi Alex - email setup is a setting on your domain. You'll need to contact your domain registrar to be able to get that sorted out. That's why we can only help setup email for domains purchased from Yola :)

Correct, at the moment domains bought from external registrars can only be pointed to your Yola site, but not transferred to the actual Yola registry.
