Want to keep your domain registered with another registrar?
To use a domain name from an outside party, it must be properly registered. Learn how »

Basic steps to register your third party domain includes:

Login to your chosen Domain Registrar - E.g. NetworkSolutions, GoDaddy
Go to their DNS management page
Create 2 A Records
The IP address of your record must point to: "184.72.229.176"
Please note: These changes may not go into effect immediately. If you require support relating to this, please contact your domain registrar.

and they replied:

Michael,

The easiest way to achieve your goal will be to contact Yola and ask them to configure your domain name with their services.

Your domain name is already pointed to their server so they should be able to configure it successfully.

Is there anything else that I can do in order to assist you?

can somebody tell me how to do it?

Hello Michael,

Your domain thechaosmc.com is correclty pointed to Yola's servers. Now all you have to do is to publish your site to that domain and you will be online.

You do need a Bronze or higher hosting subscription with Yola for this to work.

Please see the tutorial Publish to a domain you already own for the process of selecting the pointed domain and publishing.

I always check out this website before buying domain names - www.change-domain.com - My personal favourite is godaddy because they're the simplest and usually the cheapest for new domain registrations.

Yes agreed. GoDaddy is generally the best registrar to buy domains from.
