Help!

I purchased a Domain but can't get it to update from .yolasite
I also upgraded from FREE to BRONZE.

Can someone tell me what I need to do!?

These are the steps given to me by the Yola message:

Log into your account and open your site in the Sitebuilder.
If your site is unpublished, click on "Publish to the web" and then choose "I already own my domain name". Follow the steps until your site is published.

(I DON'T HAVE THE OPTION OF CHOOSING "I ALREADY OWN MY OWN DOMAIN")

If your site is published to a subdomain, click on the down-arrow next to "Publish to the web" to open the Publishing Settings and publish your site to a domain you already own.

Hi Marclea,

If you go to My Yola and to your yolasite domain then click Advanced Settings you will see the heading:

Assign Primary Domain.

Next to Add an existing domain, there is a drop down box and your new domain should be within those selections.

Click Add.

You can also select whether or not you want the display to include www or not.

Above the Add an existing Domain is the option to remove the previous primary domain, being your yolasite domain. Click on "remove" so that it will default to your custom domain.
