I don't want my domain to redirect to the yolasite url, how do I do that?

My domain is pointing to the yola site but if I type it in the browser address bar it loads and then re-directs the the yolasite url. Is there a way that the right domain shows for all the pages although the site is hosted with you on your servers. I also have hosting with my service provider. Do I need to move the site to my hosting then? and How do I do that?

Yes thanks... I own my .com domain, but I build my site with yola. Once it was ready, I was told to redirect my .com over to yolasite so when you click on my .com it switches over to yolasite.com.. I do not want this, I want the site to be on my .com so it does not redirect. I did go into my settings and try to make .com my primary but it updates and then tells me "success! your primary is yolasite.com"

I have been told the reason to change this is that I am losing SEO because my .com isn't really a website, it's simply a resting place without all my info, which is hosted on yolasite.com. Any help is appreciated!!

I did this already yesterday and it did not work immediately, but guess what?? I just checked now and it worked!! Thanks so much.. now I have to make sure to update any links I have out there to my .com instead of the yolasite but both will go to my site which is the important thing..

THANKS so much for your help!!
