Hello Mikey

Do you have Yola Free or Silver?

If you have Silver, you can point your domain name to Yola and then set it up. Please see Laura's suggestion below (it will only work if you have Yola Silver).

Also can you post you website's URL?

Thanks,
Nathan

Hi Mikey,

We have removed the domain pointing feature from the Yola Free accounts. In order to use the domain you have purchased from GoDaddy you will need to upgrade to Yola Silver. Once you have upgraded, you will be able to use the tutorial Laura has provided to point your domain.

That is absolutely retarded. You idiots are charging us now just because you can. You won't have to worry about me using yola anymore.

Being able to buy a domain on godaddy and use that domain for my website was the one thing I liked about Yola. Now you're making me pay a buttload of money for it. This is absolutely stupid. You guys put money way before the customer.

Do you plan to work for free? You Napster babies seem to think all should be handed to you

Hi Mason,

I am sorry to hear how upset you are and would like to assure you that we do not put money ahead of our customers.

We must constantly evaluate if we are marketing our product to the best of our abilities and garnering the best value for these services so that we can continue to provide a place for you to build your website.

I am confident that if you take a moment to evaluate all of the fantastic perks that come with using Yola free of charge, you will understand that the changes we do make are in your best interest so that we can offer you the professional products that we do for free.

IRWINBWHYTE!! What a name! You have nice name calling skills by the way! I guess this is what yola hires to answer community responses. You are helpful!

I appreciate the help Brianna but have decided(after much evaluation) that your service sucks. Thankyou for the help! p.s. I'd like to say that your friend just ticked me off even more and really doesn't help you out. You might need to find a new guy for Irwin over there.
