Hello!!

First post be kind!

Registered my domain with yola a couple of days ago- www.menkal.com

My previous web provider was Microsoft OLSB - I have transferred my registered domain to YOLA.com build my site menkal.yolasite.com and am dying to go live. The menkal.yolasite.com address goes to my OLSB old page - I am looking to delete that page ASAP

How long will it take to go live???

I am very happy with the other site www.isparkle.co and it was quick and easy to sort

regards

Andy

Hi Andy,

Your site: menkal.yolasite.com is immediately redirecting to http://menkal.design.officelive.com/d...

Have you added a redirection code to your index page?

yolasite sub-domains go live immediately they are published (give or take a few minutes).

this is the command when I try to put it in

Points To - The IP Address must be entered in the form N.N.N.N where N is a number between 0 and 255 (i.e. 74.125.127.104).

and the IP I am entering is 184.72.229.176.

184.72.229.176 is the correct IP address for Yola.

Double check that you are adding 2 A records.

Finally the propagation after successful addition can take some time. (Max 48 hours)

Hi Andy!

I can confirm that your domain is currently being transferred to Yola, and it should be completed within the next 4 days.

Often when a domain is transferred, it's DNS records are reset, so menkal.com's A records have been reset to point to Microsoft OLSB.

I can see that your Yola site is published to both menkal.com and menkal.yolasite.com, and menkal.com is set as your primary domain. This means that your subdomain is redirecting to menkal.com, which is currently pointing to Microsoft OLSB.

When the transfer for menkal.com is complete, it's A records will be set to point to Yola.

What you can you do in the meantime so that your subdomain points to your Yola site, is change your primary domain to menkal.yolasite.com. Then when menkal.com is transferred to Yola, you can set it back as your primary domain.

For more information on setting a primary domain, please see this tutorial: Assigning domains and creating a primary domain.
