My custom domain name expired and not renewing it. I'm looking for a way to just stick with the yolasite.com subdomain without losing all my information. When I go to Publishing settings, I click on Unpublish Your Site and it brings a warning box saying I will also lose my subdomain.
Basically I want to take my personal, expired domain off and just stick with my subdomain (http://sweetoothdesigns.yolasite.com/). Any help?

Hello,
Good question! What this means is that the subdomain would then be added back to the pool of available subdomains to be used by anyone. If you unpublish your site, and then right away go back through the publishing flow to publish the site to a subdomain, I can almost guarantee that that subdomain will be available. I say that with the thought that someone else would need to grab that subdomain immediately after you unpublish which is quite unlikely.

However, when I check the domain name you posted above, your site is currently published to that subdomain, so there isn't really a need to unpublish if that is the subdomain that you want to use.

Please let me know if this does not answer your question.
