Thank you, but I quite don’t believe that after month of good working
yolasite takes over, telling me actually I should not have bought a custom domain.
What do I tell my customer?

Hello Ernst,

Possibly I am not understanding your question properly. Here is what I see currently. When I go to your domain: http://kapstadtlodging.org/, that is what displays in the address bar.

I also did a search to find out which of your pages were indexed and what shows up in the search engine results pages. I am not seeing a yolasite address anywhere, I will attach a screen shot.

Can you tell me if I am not understanding your question and I can then take another look.

Thanks Emmy for going so deep in, I am talking Google search
enter “Kapstadt Lodging” Yolasite will now pitch up, other content related searches will do the same.

All i can suggest is removing the yola subdomain from your site.
Or
If you have google webmaster tools
make a redirect under the change of address setting which is in the site configuration section.

Hello Yola Webmasters, how do we conquer now the double content from my kapstadtlodging.org and kapstadtlodging.yolasite.com?

Dear Yola,
I am very disappointed what has happened to my
site kapstadtlodging.org, especially to a working site and not
a Micky mouse page. Thanks for placing now the redirect, but it will take a long
time for that site to get it's original standing back. In future Yola staff should
be more careful when doing changes to URL's .

Kind Regards
Ernst Weinert

Hi Ernst,
I am very sorry for the frustration you have felt over your domain name. The problem was that your site was published to the subdomain and the custom domain and neither was set as the primary. The custom domain is now the primary, and the subdomain will redirect to it. I do see that the search engine has the site indexed with the subdomain as the url in the listing, although the url in the listing does go to the proper site with the proper url in the address bar. This should really only take a bit of time to be changed once the search engine respiders the site. Please let us know how this goes for you.

Thanks Emmy, I believe I get a custom template for free.
