Hello Ian,

To change the site name, here are the steps:

1. In your Sitebuilder, click "Site" > "Site Properties".
2. Type in your site's new name in the "Site Name" field.
3. Click on "OK".

All newly created pages will reflect the new name.

Your old pages will still have the old site name in the page heading, but you can easily change this. There are two ways you can edit the page heading:

1. Click on the "Edit Heading" box on your banner - a dialog box will open where you can edit the text.

OR

2. Click on "Page" > "Page Properties".
You can edit the text in the "Page Heading" field.

If you wish to change your domain address, this will depend on whether you have a free subdomain or a custom domain. Can you please let me know which type of domain you have and then I can give you further directions.

Hello Ian,
To use a domain name that is not purchased from Yola you need to point it to our ip address from your domain registrar. This feature is only available for Yola Silver customers. Yola Silver includes a great deal of other features such as a custom domain name, Yola footer removal and access to the entire Premium Style Library, plus much more. If you would like to learn more about this package here is a link where you can also receive a 20% discount: http://www.yola.com/silver.

If you have any further questions please let us know.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

just one more, considering that I have the free YOLA, how would I go about changing my domain name? or would I have to create a whole new site?
