I currently own a website with a domain with Gradwell and it's time for renewing my account. However, I have created my new look website using Yola and now want to use the domain on yola using a .co.uk and .com option. How do I go about moving over to Yola. I still want to use the name of my previous website but want it to move over to Yola. Hope that makes sense. Jase

Hello Jase,

Thank you for your interest in transferring your domain to Yola. Do you know how soon your domain is set to expire? Unfortunately a domain transfer can take up to 12 days, and, if your domain is set to expire within that time, you will need to renew it first from your registrar and then proceed with the transfer.

Here is a fantastic tutorial that will share more on domain transfers: Transfer domain to Yola.

Please let us know if you have any further questions!

Kind Regards,

Hi, many thanks for the reply. I've now got an authorisation code from my previous provider. I've purchased a Yola .com account using the previous name of my website and it's taken payment. It hasnt asked me for the info for my authorisation code and I also dont seem to be able to purchase a .co.uk option.

I think i'm getting there just need a bit of advice on how to finalise what i'm doing. My previous web designer who has helped me has said " It seems Yola cant host .co.uk domains.You can setup an account with fasthosts and point the domain to the .com address. Let me know when you have done this and i will tell gradwell to update the IPSTAg to fatshost."

Haven't a clue what that means hence why I posted the comment, I hope that means something.

Hello JBL,

I hope I can clear up some of the confusion!

You can transfer a .com domain to Yola but we don't accept transfers for .co.uk domains at this time (this is something we still need to implement).

If you would like to use the .co.uk domain, you will need to point it to Yola as per the steps on this link: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/article....

Then you will be able to publish the site to both the .com and .co.uk address and make one of them the primary address (the other will redirect to it).

With regard to requesting your authorization code - you will receive an email asking you to do this after your transfer has been submitted.

Please let us know if you have any further questions.
