It is extremely important as i am setting up google apps for my site and this is the way that i can understand, the other means nothing to me because i do not have a clue what a CNAME is, and the other way look waaaayyy easier.
This might very lazy of me, but yeah, it is quicker and i have other things to do which are more important than setting up google apps for a site

Hello Will

It is not possible to use the .htm file to verify your account Google Apps through Yola. You need to use the CNAME. Here's how to find it:

1. Log into your Google Apps account.
2. There will be a link underneath "Email" saying that your domain is not configured, click on it.
3. The next page will be full of text with the heading "Set up email delivery". In the second paragraph, click on the link "verify domain ownership".
4. The next page will have a dropdown list underneath "Verify your domain ownership". Choose "Change your CNAME record".
5. Copy the code in point 2, it will be something like "googleffifh4736fkjdf7" - that is the CNAME you will need to add to your domain's settings to verify your domain.

Follow the steps of the Yola tutorial to add the CNAME to your domain's settings - from this link, go to step 8 and follow the instructions.

Give us a shout if you still have trouble with this.

Ahhh.. thanks for that screenshot Will. It looks like you're trying to set up an email to be associated with your .yolasite domain?

Email setup is not available for free subdomains. The reason for this is that you do not have access to the DNS management you need to create your CNAME and MX (mail exchange) records if you are using a subdomain.

This might be something we can provide in future, but for now you need a bought domain if you want to set up email for your site.

For more information on buying a domain from Yola see our tutorial.

Hmm, a bit disappointing, but it will have to do for now.
I am probably going to buy a domain in the near future anyway. Would I be able to use a 123-reg.com domain to make it work? 20 dollars is a bit much when i get dont get that much in a month. Unless the dollar is doing badly against the pound :P

Thanks for the quick reply though

If you use a different domain registrar to purchase your domain, then you will need to set up the email through them.
