Allright, so I bought a .gr domain (a greek one)

So far i had my site published to the yola subdomain wiccagr.yolasite.com

Obviously I cannot buy such a domain from yola.

I went to my registars DNS control page, and I changed the A records

as it sais in this tutorial http://www.yola.com/tutorials/article...

Now i remembered from the past that -obviously- i should tell my yola site WHAT my domain name is.

Well, this tutorial http://www.yola.com/tutorials/article... is OUT OF DATE , as the pop up window that appears in the "publish site" button has tottaly changed

And I dont seem to be able to find WHERE i should put my new domain name in the yola sitebuilder.....so that my domain name actually points to my yola site

Hello asgartha,

Thanks for your message. The reason you are not able to see an option to add your own domain when you publish your site is that this feature is no longer available on free accounts. See this blogpost for details: http://www.yola.com/blog/changes-to-free-domain-pointing-feature/.

What this means is:

1) If you currently have a domain pointed to Yola, that domain will remain pointed free of charge indefinitely provided you do not unpublish your site.
2) If you need to point any new domains to your sites, you will need to upgrade your account to Yola Silver.

With Yola Silver you can point as many domains as you wish and take advantage of all the other great Yola Silver features. Visit our Pricing Page to upgrade now!

If you would like to send us an email at support@yola.com, we will gladly look into alternative options with you. Please add ATTN:Brianna in the subject of your email. I will respond to your message in a prompt matter.
