Hi there a friend of mine has 2 accounts 1 silver and one free, both have domain names. i noticed that you can have 25 sites on the yola silver account (as i also have silver) is it possible to build a second site on the silver account and have the domain name from the free account point to it?

Hope that makes sense :0)

Hello Justin F,

The free yola account doesn't accommodate custom domains only yolasite sub-domains. (Unless you are talking about a GBBO account)

You could unpublish your sub-domain from the free account and then it will be available for the uptake into any account within Yola. So then you could publish a dummy site in your Silver account to that released sub-domain and that will secure it against anyone else coincidentally grabbing it.

If you wish to publish the original site to this sub-domain then you will need to reproduce the site in the silver account as the sites themselves are not portable.

Ho do i unpublish the domain from the free account? so i can grab it in the silver account?

so if i then create a separate website from the main one on the free account i could then purchase the domain name and attach it to the domain to that new site?

OK if the account was opened with the Get Brit Business Online scheme that's different. That's a hosted subscription plan but sort of subsidised.

In this case the DNS specialists at Yola will need to get into this and manage it for you

Suggest that you send an email to them referencing this thread or explain it again in the email.

the domain i want to transfer to a new site is http://www.body-at-work.co.uk (which i own through the GBBO program)

but on the silver account the website is http://www.equinox-online.co.uk that is the main site used on the account but i want to do is attach the body-at-work domain to a new site i'll create on the silver account?

I have just done it !.... basically what i did was create a second account on the silver site, then published to the web clicked i already own my domain typed in the http://www.body-at-work.co.uk and it automatically pointed to the new site.

I Have tested it and it worked :-)

Have a look :-)
