Hello Suraj

If you would like your site's address to redirect to another address, you can do this by accessing your Domain settings. See: Assigning domains and creating a primary domain.

However, you would need to make sure that any externally purchased domains are pointing to Yola before you can do this.

Please note: If you are trying to add a 301 redirect for a specific page on your site, unfortunately we do not have a feature on Yola that you can use to do this. An alternative would be to create that page, make sure it's not included in the menu and then add a snippet of HTML that will redirect your visitors to another page. This link will explain how to do that: Links that redirect when you click on menu tab.

Please let me know if I have misunderstood.

My Dilemma:

I would love to upload my dreamweaver made site to Yola but I dont think this is possible.

The only solution I can see is to forward (point?) my Yola domain to my existing (poorly named) external domain which I can easily upload my dreamweaver website....

so, is it possible to point my Yola domain to another domain?

I'm unaware of pointing a domain to another domain at an external location.
What you can do is point your domain to another host either by adding nameservers or adding A records. The requirement for this is determined by the external host. The process is accomplished on the Yola DNS manager for your specific Yola hosted domain.
