Hi,
great service !
Just a simple (?) question:
I just created a test version of my site with Yola and pointed (the DNS A-record) to my already registered domain to the Yola IP as defined. This works fine but when using my domain name, the yola URI still shows in the browser window. Can this be changed ? Ideally I would like my domain name to show up.
My domain (pointing to yola) is: http://www.oddcafe.se

Thanks for any response.

Hi Berndt

You can definitely do this. What you need to do is make your own domain your primary domain. We have a tutorial explaining how to do this: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/dns-for...

Here's how to change the primary domain used on your site:-

1. Login to your account on Yola.
2. On the My Sites page, scroll to the bottom and check the box next to "Enable Advanced Domain Settings".
3. Scroll back up to the top and click on the link "Advanced Domain Settings".
4. A new page will open, and you will see a list of domains assigned to your site. To reassign a domain as "Primary Domain", choose which domain you would like to be the Primary domain and click on "Click to Apply Changes".

This will be the canonical (primary) domain and the one the other domains will redirect to.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any difficulty with these instructions.
