Hello freemoneylinks,

If you want to use a domain from somewhere else (pointing your domain) you need Yola Silver. If you're a Yola Silver subscriber, you'll be able to point your domain to your Yola site and use it on your site even though it's hosted somewhere else.

If you don't have a domain for the site right now, you can use a free .yolasite.com subdomain name from Yola or you can buy a domain name too.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Ok this is what i have did. Back in Jan i bought a domain name threw yola. Bronze.
I transferred that domain name to another site now. threw DNS change. Now no matter what i do it points to that new site. Even if i type it browser example.yolasite.com it still points to the new site. I want the domain name to stay were it is now and i want to use the yolasite.com site as well but i cant figure out how to do this. If i change the DNS again it will stop pointing the domain name to my new site.

Hope this makes sence now.

Hi freemoneylinks,

So you want your .yolasite.com domain to forward to your custom domain name when you go to it? To do that, just click on "Advanced Settings" for your site and then there will be a list of the domains for your site. Click on "make primary" for the one that you want to show when you are on the site. If you go to the other ones, they will forward to your primary one.

Hope this helps.

I just read your reply again and saw that you used DNS to point it to another site. If you remove those DNS records, it should be working on your site again.

If you have any questions please let me know.

Are you wanting to transfer your domain to Yola or away from Yola? Is your domain still on Yola or is it on another domain registrar? If you have DNS settings set up in Yola pointed to another website and you want to stop pointing the domain to that other site, just remove the DNS records that you added to point it.

And can you post your .yolasite.com domain as well as your custom domain name? Thanks!

I have a site here calle freemoneylinks.yolasite.com. I got bronze awile back and changed it to freemoneylinks.net. I then went to another web hosting site becasue yola didnt have what i wanted. I had them walk me thru the domain transfer and they did. Now i want to use the freemoneylinks.yolasite.com site still but i can not because when i type that URL in i got to the new site i made on another host site.

I want to either keep both or get my domain to just stay here. Then ill leave it till it runs out in Jan of next year and go someplace else at that time and renew it then.

Alls i know is they told me to change the DNS to A www 000.000.000.000 and make anew one called A @ 000.000.000.000 but that didnt work so they had me change the A www and just A on the other one. Hope this makes sence now.

But now i can not use the yolasite.com url becasue they both go to the new site.

See for your self.

Hello freemoneylinks,

The reason why this is happening is because you have your subdomain redirecting to your custom domain. You need to unassign the custom domain from your site. Here's how:

1. Log into your Yola account and click on "Advanced Settings" next to your site name on the My Yola page.
2. Next to the domain name that you would like to remove, click on "Remove".

That should resolve the problem. Please let me know if it does not.

Yes, if you remove it, it will only remove it from your site, but it will still be on your Yola account. So when you go to freemoneylinks.net, it will go to your site on Weebly, and when you go to your .yolasite.com, it will go to your Yola one now. Is that what you want?

Hi freemoneylinks,

To get it removed from Weebly, you need to delete the records that you put in to get it on Weebly.

If you need any help with this, please let us know.

Hi freemoneylinks,

Did you delete the ones that were in there before you added the Weebly ones? If so, please follow these steps:

1.) Create an A record with the Name set as www and the Value set as 72.52.4.95

2.) Create another A record leaving the Name empty and the Value set as 72.52.4.95

After you do this, it should allow you to delete the 2 Weebly A records.

Please let us know how this goes for you.

Nathan
