Hello Peter, 

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I do see that a colleague has replied to you via email in this regard. Your site is currently published to both a custom domain as well as a Yola subdomain, and your subdomain,, is set as your primary domain.

Whenever you have your site published to multiple domains, you will always need to choose a 'primary' domain. What this means is that all other domains will revert to this address.

In order to set your custom domain as the primary domain on your account, please follow these steps:

1) Login to your MyYola account
2) Next to your published site, select 'Advanced Settings'
3) A new page will open allowing you to set your primary domain. Next to your custom domain,, press 'make primary'

Please let us know if you struggle with this, Peter. We will be glad to work with you further if needed.
