Hi there,

My website worked until now on the yolasite free domainname. Recently i purchased a domain name with another registrar, and i want to point this domain to my yola site.

My domain is www.fn-audio.be and i have set the DNS settings according to your support page. when i go to www.fn-audio.be, i get the message that i'm pointed to yola, but when i publish my site in yola, i get the error message 'incorrect A record'.
I set my DNS now 24 hours ago, without result. Am i doing something wrong ?

Hello Frederic,

Once you remove your old A Records of: 95.170.76.135 and allow 48 hours to pass for this change to propagate, you should be able to publish your site without hesitation.

Cheers!

hi there,

i thought these records were reserved for putting through my mail from info@fn-audio.be to my personal mail address.

Hi Frederic,

To publish your site with an externally purchased domain, you will need to have two A Records pointing to Yola's IP address: 184.72.229.176. Any other A Records will need to be removed.

I am unable to assist you further with your domain or mail since we are not your registrar. I would advise you to seek guidance from your registrar or consider transferring your domain to Yola so that we have control of your domain and email and are able to assist you in times such as this.
