I started out with a free site and I now want to purchase the domain name. I have business cards printed with the www.lovemypricks.yolasite.com. If I purchase the domain name lovemypricks, how can I get the current website, and any future visitors who type in the www.lovemypricks.yolasite.com over to my new website at www.lovemypricks.com?

Hi Lola,

If your site is already published to a Yola subdomain, you can easily purchase your own domain when you click on "Publish to the web". The subdomain will automatically redirect to your new address (www.example.com). This way, you won't lose the value of any links or visitors that only know your old location and they'll see your new domain.
