Hello Dan,

Is this for a sub-domain. eg: mysite.yolasite.com?

Hi Dan,

If you have published to a subdomain, here's how to change the name:

1. Click on the drop down arrow next to the yellow "Update my Site" button.
2. Click on "Publishing Settings".
3. A dialog box will open up. Click on "Edit Subdomain".
4. Type in your new domain name and click "save".

Your site will then be published to your new domain.

If you have purchased a domain name from Yola, then unfortunately it is not possible to change the name of the domain.

I was able to change the sub domain, but can't remove the "widget" (?) on the actual sight with the old website name! Tried to delete, but it won't delete. I want to type in the new website name. - Dan

I'm not sure if am understanding your correctly, but I hope this solves your problem. Go to your Properties found on the right-hand side. You can change your window title (which displays the name in the browser tabs or window) and you can also change your page heading. This is the title seen right on your site at the top. Be sure to save and update your site to see the changes reflected in your published version.
