Hi Amy,

The answer to your question is no, the Yola server is not down today. Have you changed your DNS settings yet? Since Yola had a DoS attack about 2 weeks ago they had to change their IP address. Their new IP address is: Your old DNS settings still point to the old one. You have to go into your DNS settings and change these, here are the steps:

1. Go to your DNS records management page.

2. Edit the first A record to Point to this IP: But keep everything else the same. Then save it.

3. Now, for the other A record, do the same as above. Change the "Points to IP" (or similar name) field to be: Then save it.

4. Then, wait for about 24 to 48 hours and see if it works. If it is working then you have succesfully changed your DNS records!

Here is a topic about the DoS attack:

Hope this helps
