I successfully pointed a domain I own with godaddy to my yola site - www.mywebsynergy.com redirects to tbaseo.yolasite.com. However, when I go to Your Domains>Want to keep your domain registered with another registrar and enter mywebsynergy.com and try to use it for my tbaseo yola site, i get an error saying that the domain (websynergy.com) is not pointed to yola. Obviously, I don't want to point to my yola site domain.

Currently it is

A mywebsynergy.com 64.202.189.170

The IP address needs to change to 184.72.229.176

You have a CNAME record which is correctly setup and this doesn't need to change.

Here is the Yola Tutorial relevant to this need
