Hi Ali

Yes that is possible!

If you have purchased a domain on Yola or purchased one from another domain registrar and pointed it to Yola, you can easily assign (publish) this domain to one of your sites by accessing the Advanced Domain Settings. Here's how:-

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 would like to publish to a domain bought externally, click on [Add a domain that I already own]. If you bought the domain from Yola, it will already be listed on the page.
5. Select the site you would like your domain to be published to and click on "Click to apply changes".

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

Please note: If you have a domain purchased from another domain registrar, it will need to point to Yola in order to work. Steps available here:

I hope this answers your question. If not, or if you have any difficulty with these instructions, please let me know.
