Domain issues

Today I had to unpublish my site (or thought I needed to) and then went to publish it again. But it did not allow me to point to the domain name I have registered with 1.2.3 reg. It offered to sell me a new custom name. In the past the option to point to another site (like 123) has been available - but I realise that your policy for new customers has changed. However, I thought that existing customers would still be able to do this. But the option is not there.

If I upgraded to silver would I be able to point to my existing domain name with 123reg? I have three names registered with them for sites on my current account with Yola (dyfedwynroberts.org.uk ; holidaycottageanglesey.org.uk ; and emmanuelchurchanglesey.org.uk). Or would I have to change the domain names of all three with silver? Also, with silver would all custome domain names registered with Yola be free for all 25 sites? (Or in my case the additional 22, since I have 3 sites already?)

Thanks.

Hi dyfed,

I have rectified the problem you were having with republishing your site to the domain dyfedwynroberts.org.uk, and it has been republished.

Upgrading to Yola Silver means that you can publish your site/s to external domains. You won't be prompted to purchase a new one, and you won't have to change the names of any of your domains - you can just publish to them when you are ready to publish your site.

I'm not sure what you mean about custom domains being free on Yola Silver? You do receive a custom domain credit with Yola Silver, which you can use to get a new custom domain. You can also publish all your sites to external domains for free on Yola Silver. If you would like additional domains, you will need to purchase them, which you can do during the publishing process.

I hope that answers all your questions!

Thanks for your help, Justine. Just to confirm - that out of the 25 possible sites I could desgin with Silver, only one domain name would be free?

Hello dyfed,

If you upgrade to Yola Silver, you will be able to publish to any amount of pointed domains. You also receive a credit to purchase a .com, .net, .biz or .org domain name through Yola or renew a domain that you've already purchased through us.

I hope that helps!
