I have a domain anme with 123.reg I have just upgraded to yola silver and want to point my domain name to my site. I followed the instructions and went to the DNS change and it says this

Change Nameservers For draftsealdoorsandwindows.co.uk
Important information

To use our name servers, just enter ns.123-reg.co.uk and ns2.123-reg.co.uk.
To use name servers within your domain (draftsealdoorsandwindows.co.uk), enter that domain. You'll be prompted for an IP address.
All set? Change name servers here
Enter new nameserver information:

Required
Nameserver 1:
Nameserver 2:

I have tried putting my domain name in both Nameserver boxes but it doesn't work. It says "Sorry, you need to specify at least two different nameservers. "

I'm very confused, What should i be putting in the nameserver 1 and 2 boxes?

Hi Phillip,

I'm sorry you are having a difficult time with pointing your domain to Yola.

Just to let you know that there are two different ways to point your domain, one is through changing your domain's nameservers, and the other is by changing it's A records.

Yola doesn't have nameservers to point to, and what you should do instead is create two A records to point to 184.72.229.176.

This tutorial will provide you with more information: Publish to a domain you already own.

If you find it difficult changing your A records, I would suggest contacting your domain registrar's support team and they should be able to help you. Please let us know if you run into any trouble.

Thanks,
Jackie
