Hello Gail,

You need to point your domain to Yola' servers. This can be done from many of the domain registrars DNS management facility and varies a little between registrars.

Yola have an instruction for this Publish to a Domain you already own

You will also need to purchase a hosting plan from Yola to be able to use your domain once it's pointed. There are 2 plans: Silver and Bronze

If you have any problems pointing your domain then there is further support for this process.

Hi gail,

First question:
Do you have Yola Bronze or Silver hosting plan?

You will need to purchase this to be able to publish a Yola built site to your custom domain. You can do this online.

Second question:
Do you know how to access the Dreamhost DNS management facility in your Dreamhost account?

If you don't know how to do this then please contact Dreamhost and ask them to setup 2 A records: one for the www version and the second one to the non-www version. Both must point to Yola's server: IP address 184.72.229.176
