Hello Jayne,

If you go into My Yola and select your yolasite sub domain to Edit as normal you will see above the filename "Advanced Settings". Click on this.

Now on the second editable line down, in your case, click on the drop-down arrow and select your domain.

Then select this .ca domain as your primary domain. Keep your sub-domain as your secondary domain. This will allow you to keep going where the indexing and ranking left off. It also means that if you already have users typing in or bookmarked your yolasite sub-domain they can continue so and it will seamlessly re-direct them to your new domain.

Finally select either the www. or the non-www as your canonical domain. Currently the preference is for the non-www but old habits die hard. There is no penalty or grace in one over the other.
