long question...i recently purchased a domain name outside yola but want to build the website with that domain using yola...i currently have two other domain names purchased with yola (one is primary), with a built website through yola...i tried transferring the domain that i just purchased to yola but it gave me the message that the domain has to be 60 days old before transferring. because i want to start building my website right away, my question is: can i build a website using my secondary domain name and then transfer the domain i just purchased to that website 60 days later? confusing, i know, and is there an easier way?

KATIAANDBRIAN,

If you are Silver subscribers then you can point your new domain to Yola and keep the domain with your current registrar.

If you are Bronze subscribers then your solution of publishing to your secondary domain would work as would publishing it to a yolasite subdomain. When you can transfer your new domain to Yola then you would re-publish your site to the newly transferred domain.

hi and thank you...can you tell me what a subdomain is? also, i have a secondary domain connected to my primary domain, but i'm afraid it would erase the website connected to it?

Hi,

a subdomain is for example: mysubdomain.{mydomain}.com

It means that mysubdomain is in fact a sub-domain of the domain, {mydomain}.

The naming is completely up to you. Generally you buy a domain and setting up the subdomain is done through a DNS management facility. Yola have such a facility but you need to contact them if you wish to add a sub-domain. There is a tutorial Creating subdomains with your Yola-bought domain

If your domain is held by another registrar then that would have to be configured through their facilities. But I don't think that applies with your description

Have you created your sub-domain with Yola? If so you do need to send them an email with the details so they can finish it off.

If you have created a sub-domain with another registrar then you would have to ensure that it is pointed to Yola.
