Changing your Yola's site domain, but keeping the old one too

I did this a few weeks ago, but for the life of me can't remember how I did it.

I kept my original yolasite domain name for my site, but wanted to create a new yolasite sub domain for it too. This is so people could access my site through the new name, but the old name would still work too.

I did create a new yolasite site to publish the new name, but of course this becomes the 'current primary domain' for that site, and you can't use it for your old site.

I really don't know how I did it the last time. Any ideas?

I wasn't aware that you could publish a site on two con-current yolasite sub-domains?

You certainly can publish to both a yolasite sub-domain and any number of custom domains.

Well, I'm sure I had a 'current primary domain' and a sub domain name linked to one site in 'Domain Settings'. Why does it give you the option then to 'Add an existing Domain' then?

 'Add an existing Domain' allows you to add a custom domain that you have already purchased. This could be one that you bought through Yola or another domain seller.
