I need to publish my secondary site to a subdomain of my primary site.
My site is http://www.eSecrets.tk and now I need to point http://live.Esecrets.tk to another web site in my yola account.
In advanced domain settings , in yola site manager , they already added a prefix "www" in "add a domain you already own".
After following sanja's instructions , i added my domain ignoring that www.
It appeared like below.

when click on Add button , yola returns "that domain not pointed to yola"

i am sure that I correctly configured my registrar with a cname "live" and to yola IP.
Please help me.

Hello Ayesh

If you have already bought a domain somewhere else, and you would like to create a subdomain from that domain to publish to your Yola site - you definitely can! However, first you will need to configure your subdomain name to point to Yola. You do this by creating A records (address record) to point to this IP address: "".

Here is more information:

1. You'll need to create two A Records, create one with the name of the subdomain you would like to use (eg. group) and add Yola's IP address (
2. On the second A Record, under "Name" add *.name (where name is your subdomain) and the IP address is the same.
3. Your subdomain is then available as www.group.mysite.com and http://group.mysite.com (for example).
4. You will be able to publish a new site to that subdomain by choosing "Use my Domain" when clicking on "Publish to the web".

For more information, we have a tutorial outlining the steps to configuring your domain: Publish to a domain you already own.

Once you've pointed your domain, watch a step-by-step video on how to publish your site using a domain you already own, please see: Publish to an external domain
