Hi Gilda

I hope to help clear this up! Can you please give these steps a try to change your primary domain:

1. Login to your Yola account and make sure you are on the "My Yola" page.
2. Click on "Advanced Settings" next to the relevant site.
3. You will be directed to a page where you can choose your primary domain.

This will be the primary domain and other domains will redirect to this one.

If you get stuck, please give us a shout!

Thank you very much, it worked. I just wasn't sure about removing the original one. Can you help me with another question? In my site manager I want to change the name to the new one, but it says that the site already exists. It is an unpublished site. Can I just delete it and then change the name on the old site? Thank you for your time and help.

Hi Gilda,

Glad to hear that you were able to make your new domain your primary domain! You can certainly delete the old site if you are no longer using it. This will free up the name you would like to add to your new site. Another option you have is simply renaming your unpublished site. You can do this by clicking on that site in the Site Manager and selecting 'rename'.

Certainly let us know if you struggle with this!
