I have my own Australian domain name etc. After setting it all up and pointing the domain to the Yola site. It still wont work. When I log into my website address, my old website has now been replaced with the Yola welcome and states my domain is pointed and Im ready to upload to the web. When I log into Yola and go through the process of typing my own domain and then test settings- it still says " not pointing to Yola" What am I to do?? Does it take 2 days to come up?

Thank you Kris for sharing the URL.

When I look up your domain's settings, I see that you have one A Record pointing to Yola and another pointing to: 203.147.168.141

Please make sure you have 2 A records set up. If you would like your domain to work correctly with the "www" prefix you need to make sure that your DNS settings are configured correctly to support the "www" prefix. For this you need to set up two A-records:

* Some domain registrars require one A Record with the hostname "@" and one with the hostname "www".
* Other domain registrars allow you to create one hostname called "domain.com" and another "www" (replace "domain" with your own address).
* Both should point to our IP address: 208.75.208.172.

For more information on pointing your domain to Yola, click on this link.
