For a client of mine I built a Yola website. Now she has a domain of her own, kijkopkoeien.nl, for which she upgraded to Yola Bronze. I set up the 2 A-records. Now when I try to point to kijkopkoeien.nl using the Publish button, there is no option for using the own domain name. I can only publish to the Yola url. Where is the other option???

I did, but as I said: when I click Publish, there is NO option for the "Already own a domain?" section. When I click Publish, it immediately starts publishing! How can I choose????

To publish your live site to your domain:
If your site is already published to a Yola subdomain, go to My Yola.
Click on "Domains".
Under "Add a domain you already own" select "Want to keep your domain registered with another registrar?"
Type your domain name into the required field, and select the site you'd like to use it with.
Click "Add".
Follow steps provided.
If your domain now redirects to your subdomain, you can change it by following the steps on this link: My domain is redirecting to my Yolasite subdomain.
