Hello there Joshua,

If you have already bought a domain somewhere else, and you would like to create a subdomain from that domain to publish to your Yola site - you definitely can! However, first you will need to configure your subdomain name to point to Yola. You do this by creating A records (address record) to point to this IP address: "208.75.208.172".

Here is more information:

1. You'll need to create two A Records, create one with the name of the subdomain you would like to use (eg. group) and add Yola's IP address (208.75.208.172).
2. On the second A Record, under "Name" add *.name (where name is your subdomain) and the IP address is the same.
3. Your subdomain is then available as www.group.mysite.com and http://group.mysite.com (for example).
4. You will be able to publish a new site to that subdomain by choosing "Use my Domain" when clicking on "Publish to the web".

For more information, we have a tutorial outlining the steps to configuring your domain: Publish to a domain you already own .

Once you've pointed your domain, watch a step-by-step video on how to publish your site using a domain you already own, please see: Publish to an external domain .

I hope this helps.
