I would like to point my domain name from Yola to another domain name that is not hosted by Yola. I would like the address bar to keep the domain name from Yola in the bar after being forwarded to my other domain name.

Hello, so what you want to do is use the Yola bought domain name on another website not hosted by Yola? Or are you wanting to have a domain not bought from Yola to forward to your Yola bought domain name? You can set this up in My Yola, just let me know what you need.

I am looking forward to helping you out.

Thanks,
Nathan

Hi Michelle,

Thanks for your message! Domain forwarding is not a feature that we offer at this moment.

If you have a domain name registered with Yola you can point the domain to a different host so that you are able to publish a site outside of Yola to a domain name purchased from Yola; this would be done using the Advanced Domain Settings. However, if what you would like to do is have your domain name resolve to another domain name, this is called domain forwarding and is a feature we do not provide at this time.

For more information on pointing your Yola purchased domain elsewhere, please see this tutorial Point domain elsewhere.

In terms of domain forwarding, we will make our developers aware of your request so that they can consider offering it in the future.

I hope you find this helpful, Michelle. Certainly do not hesitate contacting us if you need further assistance.

Kind Regards,
Brianna

Hi Brianna, if you go through the Domains page you can actually make multiple domains forward to your primary domain. Wouldn't this be domain forwarding? Try it here: http://nathansmusicstudio.yolasite.com When you go to that it forwards to my primary domain. Also I have other sites doing this. One site I have a bunch of domains forwarding to the primary domain name. Wouldn't this be considered domain forwarding?

Hi, Nathan,
Michelle is wanting her domain name forwarded to an external domain and yet have the Yola one be the primary. This is not possible.

Ah I see. Thanks diane for letting me know, I thought she wanted her external domain to go to her Yola website.
