Hi Angi,

You can certainly configure a GoDaddy purchased domain to a Yola site, however, this feature is available for the Silver level. You can read about these changes here: Changes to free domain pointing.

If you are a Silver customer, you do this by creating A records (address record) to point to this IP address: "184.72.229.176". You will need to do this configuration yourself and the method for doing so varies from registrar to registrar. You will need to log in to your account with your domain registrar and create 2 A Records (Address Record) to point to this IP address: 184.72.229.176. One A Record for WWW and another one for @.

Please take a peek at our tutorial here: Publish to a domain you already own.

If you are not a Silver customer, I encourage you to take a peek at the other fantastic features that Yola Silver offers. You can read about them here.

I hope you find this information helpful, Angi. Please let us know if you need further clarification or assistance in this regard.

Hi Angi,
The instructions Brianna has given you are the instructions needed to use a domain name that was not purchased from Yola for a site built with Yola. If you have built a site with another website builder (not Yola), that entity might have other instructions. If you need specific help with the GoDaddy interface and making changes to A Records I would suggest contacting GoDaddy support for assistance.

Kind Regards,
Emmy
