Hello alexbarton,
I'm not sure I understand exactly what you want to do. Can you describe in more detail what you situation is. Do you have a site built with Yola or a domain name purchased from Yola? If you can give me a bit more information I can try to give you the problem instructions.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Hi charltonmaloney,

Can you please clarify if you are trying to point your Yola domain to a Wix page or vice versa? What's your domain name?

Hi Charlton,

This is a Wix function and may require their specific solution(s).

Generally this can be done with a link using HTML in the general form:
<a href="http://WWW.CALPINCOHAIRSALON.CO.UK"> Your link phrase on your Wix page somewhere</a>

Hello charltonmaloney

I'm not quite sure about what you mean by "to point". If you mean "to link from your Wix site to your Yola domain", then go for Gop's HTML solution or however Wix offers their users to add links.

If you want your visitors get on your Wix site when they use your Yola domain URL, you will need to point your domain away from Yola to Wix:
  1. Login to your Yola account and make sure you are on the "My Yola" page.

  2. Click on "Domains" and then click on "Advanced settings" next to the domain name.

  3. To access the A Record, click on "Change your DNS settings".

  4. To add an A Record, click on "Add DNS Record".

  5. Make sure that "A" is selected (you'll need to add two A Records) if you would like your domain to work with 'www' and without):
  6. In the first A Record, leave the name blank and paste the IP address in the Value field. The IP address you should use is: 216.139.213.144

  7. In the second A Record, add 'www' under the name and paste the IP address in the Value field.

  8. The original A Records will still remain but be overwritten.

Please note: It can take up to 48 hours for this change to fully propagate across the internet.

For more information on accessing the DNS Settings on your domain, please view this tutorial: Managing the domain you bought from Yola.
