I currently have a site published to HiltonReseachinc.com on Yola but I want to change it to use my other domian HiltonResearch.com. I changed the ARecords at Network Solutions and now can see the Yola page on HiltonResearch.com but I cant figure how to get my site published to HiltonResearch.com. I own both domains thru NetworkSolutions but plan to let HiltonResearchinc.com expire as I dont want both of them. How can I accomplish this?

Hi Tony, 

Once 2 A records are added to HiltonResearch.com pointing to 184.72.229.176 you can add the domain to your MyYola account and assign it to your Yola site. See the step by step instructions to publish to your newly pointed domain here.

The ARecords are set I am using the free Yola so it does not give the option to add another domain?

Hi Tony,

A Yola hosting plan such as Bronze, Silver or Gold is required to publish to a custom domain. You can take a look at our packages and pricing here!

So there is no way I can replace my current domain with another one I already own without purchasing a package?

Hi Tony, 

It's accurate that in order to publish a Yola built site to a custom domain you need to have a hosting subscription. There's no fee for changing one custom domain with another, but any custom domain publication on a Yola site requires hosting. Is it possible you are currently published to one of our free .yolasite subdomains?

I'm happy to look at your specific account settings but HiltonReseachinc.com is not in our system, nor is it available for lookup in the Whois database. I am also unable to locate an account for you using the email address you have associated with this forum. If you are referring to an alternate domain name, please share it here and I'll take another look!

Thanks for that Tony! I see there was just a typo in the domain name you shared and that it is http://www.hiltonresearchinc.com/. I should have noticed that missing "r"! 

We will follow up with you via direct email to the account email address you indicated above but I'll also remove that post now that we've located your account for your security.

Hi Laura,

Did you find out if Hiltonresearchinc.com was published to a free.yolasite subdomain? is there a way for me to see this?   

Thanks for your help.

Hi Tony, 

I have been able to look deeper into this and was just discussing your case with colleagues as it is a unique circumstance. I will be following up via direct email shortly. Thanks for your patience!
