I have been working on a new site template under the existing Yola Silver package and would eventually like to publish this template under my URL. The existing site would then become obsolete. Is there a way to 'migrate' the URL once the template is ready to publish?

I have a silver Yola package and have been working on a new website template. How do I publish the new site under my existing URL without re-creating the whole design on the current template?

Hello Juanique

If I understood you correctly, you have one Yola account with two websites, one of them is your old one, and the other is supposed to be your new website, is that correct?

Switching the domain from your old website to your new website is very easy: All you need to do is to unpublish your old website. This will remove it from your domain. Then you can simply publish your new website to your domain which is now available again.

Please let me know if this doesn't answer your question.
