Hi there. I had a Yola site which I wanted to publish to a domain I bought from another provider. But I can't seem to change the yolasite.com name to the website name without the yolasite.com. When I type in my web address it takes me to the correct place, but the URL bar is still showing yolasite.com.

Please can you assist?

Thanks and regards

Hello Debra,

If you've published your site to your own domain and it is redirecting to your Yolasite subdomain, here's how to change it so that the subdomain redirects to your custom domain:

1. Login to your Yola account and make sure you are on the "My Yola" page.
2. Click on "Advanced Settings" and make sure that the correct site is selected on the drop-downlist on the right.
3. The two domains will be listed on the page and you will be able to change your primary domain by clicking on "make primary".

Your custom domain name will now be the primary and the subdomain will redirect to the custom domain.

I hope that helps!
