Hello Imelda,

The domain you purchased is brought in when you Publish your site.

This will happen after creating the sitefile in your builder and hit the publish key and then there are prompts to nominate the domain to publish your site file to.

It is a bit confusing initially but after the first publishing you don't need to concern yourself thereafter as it remembers the domain for evermore. :)

If this isn't clear please let us know here.

Oh, thanks, I had just figured this out a few minutes ago. It is somewhat confusing, I believe there should be more explicit instructions on "how to open the domain in site builder...." Thanks again!

Hi Imelda,

In fact there is as you have mentioned. Bad me I forgot to include the reference in my response: How do I publish my website to the internet for everyone to see?

There's a large collection of Yola tutorials linked to in the Footer of this page under the section Need help? which are placed within sections and titles not necessarily so intuitive :(
