JDF I think that these settings will work for you. The Zone Edit in GoDaddy has changed a little recently. Please note the IP to point your A record (Host) to.

The alias www has been altered I think from those instructions also. They now include that setting in the CNAME records rather than the A records.

Those two settings will get you going but maybe a bit of delay (30 mins to 48 hours)

Please ignore the red arrows in the CNAME section , these are for Google Apps

Hello Jawdropfilms,

We have an updated tutorial on publishing your GoDaddy domain to Yola here: GoDaddy

I hope this helps.

Well, this certainly helps. But....

My website is pointed, and when I go to my domain I see my old yola site. So, I went to MyYola and saw that my custom page is unpublished. I try to publish, but I just get a message saying it is not pointed correctly. :(

Not sure what's happening.

Hello jawdropfilms,

From what I can see, your domain is also working for me. I see that your Sitebuilder is correctly showing as "Live" with a green traffic light. This content appears to be the same as your live site.

Please let us know if this issue is now resolved.
