Hi Alison

Currently we are unable to host Australian domain names ourselves, but you can point your domain to us and use it to publish your site.

You need to log into your account with your domain registrar and create an A record for our IP address: 208.75.208.172

For full instructions, see: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/publish...

If you have any difficulties with the instructions, please let us know.

HiMonique,

OK Thanks.

So that means all my hard work creating my site isn't wasted? Is that correct?. I'm guessing if I point my domain name to Yola it will just bounce to your site and pick-up my webpage when people search it?

Thanks for your speedy reply to my question.

No your hard work is most certainly not wasted! If you point your domain to 208.75.208.172 and then publish your site to your domain, when people click on a link or type in your domain they will get to your site.

We have a large number of customers who successfully host their sites with us, even and have their domains are managed elsewhere, so I am fully confident that this will work for you.
