Redirect from a .biz to a .co.za

I have a yola site that was pointed to 2 domains - a .co.za and a .biz. I then pointed it to only the .co.za domain. However in Google searches the .biz site still shows up and shows a Yola message saying 'Your domain is pointing to Yola!
Now you just need to publish your site and you're done!'. I would like the .biz domain to redirect to the .co.za domain, how do I do that? Many thanks

Hello Angela

Can you please let us know what your .biz domain is and then we can look into this further and offer suggestions.

Thank you for your patience as we work on this together.

Hi, you need to add the .biz domain too. To do this, go to MyYola first. Now, click on "Domains" on the side. Now, click "Want to keep your domain registered with another registrar?" and enter your domain without www. in the front. Choose what website to use this domain for. Then, click "Add". Do this same step for your other domain name if you haven't already added it. Now, go back to "My Yola" on the side. For the site you are working on, click "Advanced settings" Now, you'll see all of the domains you have for that site. Choose the .co.za domain to be the primary one. Now, if you go to any other domain of your site, it will redirect to the .co.za one!

I hope this helps!

I you have nay question or have a problem, don't hesitate to post it here!

Sincerely,
Nathan
