Hello Karinka,

Domain pointing is available to our Yola Silver customers. To point your domain to Yola, simply visit your domain registrar and change your A Records to point to Yola's IP address: 184.72.229.176.

If you are not a Yola Silver customer, I do encourage you to check out the FAQs about Yola Silver as it includes many additional fantastic features beyond the domain pointing. You can read about the package here: Yola Silver.

If you are not interested in upgrading to Silver and your domain is a .com, .net, .biz or .org, you also have the opportunity to transfer your domain to Yola allowing you to manage it from within your Yola account. We have instructions for transferring your domain here.

I know this is a fair amount of information to take in. Please take some time to review the options you have and let us know if you have any further questions or need clarification. We'll be happy to help.

Hello Brianna,
Thank you very much for your reply!
My domain site asks for the host name and he says that I need at least 2 servers host names to fill.
I would appreciate if you tell me what to do.

Thank you very much,
Karin.

Hi Karin,

You are very welcome!

Yola does not have nameservers. We encourage you to take a moment to review this tutorial: Publishing to a domain you already own.

If your registrar says there is no way to change the A Records on their side, you can check into using zone edit which I believe offer a couple free domain management trials.

I hope this is helpful to you!
