If you wish to take advantage of our domain pointing feature, you will need to upgrade to Yola Silver.

Hello Kezza,

In order to point your domain to Yola, you need to change the A records, not the nameservers. For further instructions, please see: What are Yola's Nameservers.

Please let us know if you get stuck!

Hi Kezza

Sorry to hear it is becoming complicated for you. It is usually a fairly simple process. If you do not want to pay your domain registrar to point your domain to Yola, another alternative is to use the domain credit you received when you upgraded to Yola Silver and buy a different custom domain for you website, e.g yoursitename.COM.

I know this is not ideal, as I'm sure you would like to use your .com.au domain for your site. However, given the circumstances, this is way to work around the problem.
