How can I publish my website which I made using Microsoft Web Matrix onto your server using the domain name I have registered with yola?
Hi, I have recently registered a domain name on yola, and was wondering instead of using a template on yola, if I can used a pre-made design which I have made on Microsoft Web Matrix.
When I click on publish, it asks me for server details, and I am unsure what to enter.
Below I have provided a link to a screenshot which shows what details I need to enter:


Hope you can help,
Many Thanks,

Hi Tee-Jay,

Thanks for bringing this up. At this time it it not possible to upload an already created site or template into the Yola sitebuilder. I would encourage you to find an environment to host your website. It looks like you may be able to do this with Microsoft, however, I am not familiar with their environment.

If you can host your site with Microsoft, and need to point or transfer your domain to them, please share your domain with us so we can provide you the necessary guidance for transferring and pointing. Thanks!

Hi, I am not trying to use the yola site builder with my template, I just want to publish the website and direct it to the domain which I have with yola.
To publish the template and direct it to my domain with yola I need the Service URL or server name which will be hosting my domain as I can't see it in my domain settings.

I have also found this, which gives examples of what details I need in order to publish my site:


All I need is the details from yola, from these examples.

Hi Tee-Jay,

Typically when you want to publish your Yola bought domain to an externally created site, you will either change your DNS settings at Yola or transfer your domain to another registrar.

We have a tutorial created here: Transfer your domain to a new domain registrar. however, if you have a .ca or .co.uk domain, the steps are changed a bit.

Please take a moment to review those steps. If your domain is a .ca or .co.uk domain, please share it with us so that we can provide the proper steps for using your domain on a site outside of Yola. Thanks!

Hi, I have already attempted to resolve my problem on here by asking how, but I don't think they quite understood what I was saying.
I have made my own website template, as the design in the yola site builder do not meet my requirements.
When I go to publish my template the client asks for the server name, username and password. As these are not supplied within the domain settings on yola I am unable to create a website for my business, so I am quite unhappy.

Below is a screenshot from the client, which shows what details need to be entered:


Also here is another picture stating in more detail the details required:


Without the server name I am unable to create my site or start my online business, so I would be pleased if you could try and supply me with the details, or to solve my problem with an alternative.

Many Thanks,
Tee-Jay Dack
