Hello, I have bought the domain "oliverharrisdesign.co.uk" and I hosted, through yola, a site under that domain. It was published, however I wanted to put a new site under that domain. I deleted the old site, but now I can't publish to "oliverharrisdesign.co.uk" as the option doesn't appear in the drop down list of domains I own. Also the site is still live on the web, which i found out by clearing my browser's cache and then entering the domain name. Please help!

Hello Oliver

I have checked your Yola account, but I'm not sure which one is your old and which your new website. Can you please tell me the name of your new website for me try to publish it to your domain oliverharrisdesign.co.uk?

Hi, thanks for the response. I'd like the website "placeholder" to be where oliverharrisdesign.co.uk points for the time being. Can you fix it so that I can reassign the domain myself again after you've done that? Thanks.

Hi Oliver

I've published your "Placeholder" website to your domain oliverharrisdesign.co.uk for you as requested. Please note: Search engines may now pick up your website name "Placeholder" which will show in search results and in your page title.

When I assigned your website to your domain, I got an error message, but it still seemed to work. If you encounter any difficulty when reassigning your domain to another of your sites, please let me know.
