I would like to point my godaddy account to yola but I am having problems. My domain is, and I have forwarded it to my yola website. Now when I go to my domain I have a place holder and it tells me to publish my site, but when I follow the instructions then yola does not have the option to choose my own domain to point to, as described in the instructions. If these instructions are out of date please let me know the new ones.

Hello Brendan,

The placeholder page instructions are out-of-date and are in the process of being updated.

We recently made a change where only Silver account holders are able to publish to an externally pointed domain. If you do not wish to upgrade to Yola Silver, then you can transfer your domain to Yola so that it is managed by us and not (and that is cheaper than upgrading to Silver).

For more information on transferring your domain:
