Hello Mitesh,

If you point your GoDaddy domain to Yola's servers then you could set your GoDaddy domain as your primary and your .co.uk domain as your secondary. This would in effect instantly direct your users to the GoDaddy domain.

You would need to build your site with Yola and publish.

If you have built a site with GoDaddy sitebuilders then you can use another kind of instant re-direct which would redirect users who open the .co.uk to your GoDaddy domain within a fraction of a second.

Hi Mitesh,

It's still not clear to me whether you are speaking about a site built with GoDaddy sitebuilders or if in fact you have pointed your GoDaddy domain to Yola and published a new Yola site to this. The reason I'm asking is that the process is different depending on which way you have done it.

The processes I have outlined will direct a so called secondary domain to a so called primary domain. In your case the .co.uk would be your secondary domain and your other domain would be set as your primary domain. Domains and sites are separate entities.

If you can tell me where you built your site published to your GoDaddy bought domain then this will allow me to give you the definitive answer.
