I have read that to bring my domain to yola can take 12 days. If this is nthe case is there any downtime with the previous website that is hosted elsewhere?

Hello Ian,

During the transfer period your domain is inaccessible and the site associated with such a domain is not available on the web and that includes your previously published site on this domain.

Hi Gop

Thanks for that, although not the news I was wanting to hear. Would it be better to point the 'external' domain to a new one with Yola?

Hello Ian

If you have one of our paid hosting packages Yola Bronze, Yola Silver, or Yola Gold, you can point external domains to Yola. You won't need another domain with Yola to do that, but you can point your external domain directly to your Yola website. It's easy to set up, and there won't be the interruption as with a transfer. For more information please see our tutorial Publish to a domain you already own.
