Hi Bob786

When you buy a domain, it is not possible to change it easily, as we have incurred expenses when we processed the registration. However, if you have bought the domain within 24 hours, we may be able to assist with your request.

Can you tell us the name of your domain that you would like to change?

Thanks
Nazlie

Hi Prakrit, if you unpublish you site (click on the arrow next to the green box, click unpublish site). If you then publish your site (clicking on the green button, not the arrow), and choose the Free Subdomain option and type the new domain, if it is available, click Publish and your URL will change.

If you need anymore help, let me know.

Kind Regards,

Andi

If it is a free yola domain name, unpublish your site and republish under the correct (free - .yolasite.com) domain.

That should work!

Hi Bob786,

Just click on the arrow next to the publish to the web button and select Publishing settings.



Now you will see a box pop up. Click on the "Edit subdomain" button.



Just type in your new sub domain that you want.

Click "OK"

You will need to type in "change" in the text box that appears after you click "OK" to confirm that you want to change it. Then click on "OK" again and it will be changed.

You may need to publish your site for this to take affect.

I hope this helps!
