Hello Justin,
It is not possible to upload a site built outside of Yola into the Yola Sitebuilder to be hosted with us as for a site to work in Yola it needs to be built using the Yola Sitebuilder.

Domains require a 60 day waiting period between purchase and transfer. This is standard industry practice, and something that is beyond our control. Once your domain has been registered for 60 days you will be able to transfer it away from Yola.

Alternatively, you can edit your DNS settings so that your domain points to your new provider. Depending on the host you're moving to, it would either be editing nameservers or creating an A Record. This means that you will still get a renewal reminder when your domain is due to expire. If you choose this option, please view this tutorial: DNS for your domain purchased from Yola.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Thankyou for that ! How do I know if I have had my domain for 60 days? Is there anywhere I can check? Does it cost to transfer my domain away?
