You can choose the one you want to be your main domain name. I think any others lised will automatically be redirected to your main one.

Please verify that with Yola, but I think that's how it works.

Hello Arnold,
If you are wanting to have your domain published to both domains, or just to one of them? What you can do is have the domain published to both, and then choose one to be the primary so that the other will redirect to it. Here is a link to our tutorial with more information on how to do this: Assigning domains and creating a primary.

Please let us know if you have any trouble with this.

Hello projectkenya

You can cancel those two domains you don't want any longer in your My Yola. Please follow these steps:
  1. Log into your My Yola.

  2. In the left-hand side, click on "Domains".

  3. Next to the domain you want to cancel, click on "Cancel".


You will then have cancelled auto-renewal of that domain, and it will expire at the end of its registration period.

Please note: If the website you published to this domain is not published to more domains at the same time, it will go offline as soon as the domain expires.

Let us know if you have more questions or need further assistance.

Hi Gabe,

The steps above are for removing auto-renewal payments from your account. If you wish to transfer your domain to another account within Yola or to another domain registrar, please submit a request to support here detailing what you would like to do. DNS changes must be handled via direct support in order to verify domain ownership.
