I'm trying to buy my domain name for cheaper elsewhere, but it's asking me for PRIMARY DNS SERVER and SECONDARY DNS SERVER information and I can't find this info ANYWHERE on yola -- grrrrrrrrrrrr! When I've done this in the past with other providers, they easily provide that info. Where is this? HELP! (and NO I am not trying to create an A record or whatever that is. The only way to register a domain through this place that I trust is by entering primary and secondary dns server info for the providers.)

Hi there September,

Does your domain registrar not offer DNS management?

At Yola we do not have name servers as we are not the managers of your domain, we simply host your site. Your domain name registrar needs to provide you with your name servers and you then point your site to us by setting up an A record.

If your domain name registrar does not provide you with domain name management then you are going to have to use a third party service like.
ZoneEdit

We have instructions on how to use ZoneEdit in our tutorial here: Tutorial

I hope this helps.
