Redirecting existing domain name

hI I have 2 sites one is food4memories.com and other is foodformemories.com. The first I have no issues opening the 2nd though I get this message;

Your domain is pointing to Yola!
Now you just need to publish your site and you're done!

Log into your account and open your site in the Sitebuilder.
If your site is unpublished, click on "Publish to the web" and then choose "I already own my domain name". Follow the steps until your site is published.
If your site is published to a subdomain, click on the down-arrow next to "Publish to the web" to open the Publishing Settings and publish your site to a domain you already own.

Godaddy has the 2nd site name directed to food4memories.com, I've checked to make sure.

Now when I go on to Yola to republish this site (this was working at some point) I get the following message;
The domain you entered is unavailable to transfer. Please ensure you typed it correctly, check the restrictions listed on this page, and contact your current registrar to resolve any issues.

Can you help me with this problem? Thanks

i'm having a similar problem, how do I make a domain name i've just bought from godaddy- www.gastric-band-hypnosis-wigan.com point to my yola website www.thewhyweightcoach.co.uk ?
Also how do I add html to my yola site? If I use the html widget, all it does is display the code in a text box

Hi martin,

Your second query first: When you drag the HTML widget onto your page, a placement page appears with numbers down the left side. You can either type your HTML into this or you can paste some previously copied HTML code into it. Then you Save the addition and it's installed onto your page. Depending on the content this may not be apparent until you publish your page or examine it with the preview facility.

To point your Go-Daddy domain to Yola's servers requires that you access the DNS management facility on goDaddy. Here is a tutorial for doing that Configuring your GoDaddy Domain
