I had a company called Yell.com purchase a domain name for me www.architecturalscotland.co.uk

I have asked them if I can transfer the domain name to Yola. (I have created a site on Yola alreadys)

They have asked for an IPS tag eg FASTHOST or TUCOWS to be able to transfer the site to Yola. Please HELP!!

They also want an email address as a contact for the new service provider. (Yola)

Hi Craig,

Unfortunately you are unable to transfer .co.uk domains to Yola. In this case, you will need to remain with your current registrar and edit your domain settings so that it is pointed to Yola, this link has the steps: http://www.yola.com/customer-support/....

Please let us know if you need any other help.

Hello there,

I have a domain bought from register.com and it is pointed to the site I created in Yola. Recently, due to the fact that Yola provided the offer to make email addresses, I now want to change the registrar to Yola. Is it possible? Now that I cannot make the email addresses, I would be glad if someone help me out with this. Thanx.

Hi beachtravels.

You can certainly transfer your domain to Yola but this is quite a lengthy process. Register.com offer email on this link: http://www.register.com/titan/product...

Are you able to change MX Records on the DNS settings of your register.com domain? If you don't want to use their email setup, perhaps using a free service like Google Apps and Windows Live would work.

If you'd still prefer to transfer your domain to Yola, please send us an email so that we can get started (support@yola.com).

Thanx for your great support! Well I already bought a business email from Register.com, which I am still using. I am not sure I can change MX Records on the DNS settings, but I think I can. Register.com should let me, i guess. Anyway, since everyone wants to go ease, why not use the free service.
I have developed the website through Yola and it would be best if Yola is the registrar and depend on Yola. I would prefer to transfer my domain in Register.com www.beachtravelmaldives.com to Yola. Still do I have to mail support@yola.com? :-)

Hi LouisJvRensburg

I understand your viewpoint about your dad not needing all the features of Yola Silver. At this time, we are not able to host .co.za domains, but we would like to help your dad publish his site. Please email us at support@yola.com and we will assist you further.

I see that it is possible to transfer a domain name from Register.com to Yola. What are the costs associated with Yola hosting the domain?

Thank You
