Hello Reni

That's easily done with Yola. Please refer to our tutorial Assigning domains and creating a primary domain.

Let me know if you have any questions or get stuck anywhere?

I have tried that but I am getting the following message:

Unable to remove primary domain

Since this is the primary domain of one of your other sites, you cannot remove the domain from this site.

If you'd like to remove this domain you can do it by visiting the advanced site settings for that site.

Hello Reni

It sounds like you're trying to assign a domain which is already in use for another site. You will first need to remove that domain from the other site before you can assign it to the new one. To remove it, go to your My Yola dashboard, select the site which is published to this domain, click on "Advanced Settings" next to the site name, and remove the domain.

If you need detailed steps, you can post this information for me to assist you further:
  • the domain which you want to assign to another site

  • the name of the website to which you want to assign it
