Hi,

The description you have given doesn't mention Yola. There seems to be some confusion here. 

If you've bought a GoDaddy account then you need to point this to your WP server. Your best resource for info would be WP & GoDaddy.

Right now my url is thru yola.  Everything is on yola, but I am trying to leave yola sadly for a more sophisticated sitebuilder.

Thank you, I believe I understand.  I have already built a new site on wordpress, bought the go-daddy, now all I need is to transfer the URL from yola to godaddy.

The instructions for the transfer: Transfer your domain to a new domain registrar

Hi, so I just did the complete transfer and now my site is down!!  Please look: www.hiddensandiego.net.  Is this normal to have a down time where I'm just off the internet, in limbo?  I did not expect this and this is obviously going to affect my site and traffic.  Please help!!!

I can still see your site you referred to.
 
Once you transfer your domain away from Yola the site may be unable to be published by Yola because the domain is out of touch until the transfer is complete. The site and the domain become dissociated. Once the transfer is complete, which can take upto 2 weeks but I have found the uptake by godaddy to be much quicker than this, then you could re-point your domain back to Yola and re-publish, if required. This may require further configuration.

You can't publish more than 1 site to a domain so you will need to choose which site you wish to publish to your newly transferred domain, either your old Yola built site or your WP site that you have referred to.
