Hi all, I have a domain name that i want to transfer from 123.reg to yola.
No problem i have pointed it to Yola through Yola instructions not hard at all but yet the hard part is Yola saying that it is not pointed properly??
Seriously tho how can it not me?? Perhaps i am making a school boy error who knows!!
It is just a domain name i have with 123 reg and it is not hosted anywhere yet as i have to build it which i will do through Yola as i have silver membership there.
Any help would be very welcome and thank you :)

Hello John,

What is your domain name? I can check the validity of the DNS records from here.

Hi John,

Chances are you have one A record pointing correctly but need to set the second one to also point to our IP address: 184.72.229.176.

You can review this tutorial for the steps.

Hello,

I'm Nerys and I work for 123-Reg.

If you would like I would be happy to check your domain name set up for you to ensure that the records are set up correctly. If you would like me to do this please confirm the domain name.

Regards,

Nerys

Hi Guys thank you all so much for your offer of help i really appreciate it :-)
Well yola has checked and said it is pointed but pointed to one of my websites on yola??
I do not want it to point to that website as i want it to be independent so when i finish my new website i can use it to publish it........ Do i need to host it first?? I am a silver yola user but i really have no idea how all this works so i am so sorry for my ignorance :(
Thanks again to you all its nice when we can help one another :)

You can publish any website on any Yola account you like to your pointed domain. You have already got Silver you don't need another hosting account. You just need to build another site within the same Yola account. All your sites are and will remain independent.

When you are ready to publish to your domain just select the domain in your sites advanced settings. If it's being used currently by another of your sites you would need to unpublish that site first.
