Can I purchase multiple domains or multiple domain extensions (i.e. www.anysite.com and www.anysite.org) through Yola or do I need to use another registry option?

Hello,

Yes you can surely do this!

Here is what you would need to do:

1. Create a new site. When you first login to Yola you will be on the My Sites page, there is a red button that says "Create New Site".

2. Publish the second site just as you published the first one, and purchase the domain name that you would like to use for the other site.

3. Un-publish this site. To do this, click the down arrow of the "Update Site" button, click "Publishing Settings", click "Unpublish Site". This site will now be unpublished and you now own the domain.

4. Next you can go into your Advanced Domain Settings and add the domain to your other site and choose a primary.

Here's how to do this in your Advanced Domain Settings:

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. If you bought the domain from Yola, it will already be listed on the page and you will be able to click on the drop-down menu to assign it to the site you would like to use it for.

6. Click on "Click to apply changes".

By assigning a domain as "Primary Domain", this will be the canonical (primary) domain and the one the other domains will redirect to.

You can then do this if you would like to purchase any other domains. Let us know if you have any trouble.
