I currently own a domain through network solutions. I changed the DNS settings to point the domain to yola. If I visit the web page now, it says my domain is pointing to yola, but when I try to publish my site, it gives me an error saying the domain is not pointing to yola. Help! Website is www.thehyacinth.com.

Hello Julie

When I visit your website http://www.thehyacinth.com, it doesn't say that it's pointing to Yola, but displays a Network Solutions page.

The problem is that your domain is currently pointing both to Yola and to (probably) Network Solutions at the same time because there are two A records which have been added for it. Pointing to Yola will only work if there is just the A record for Yola which is 184.72.229.176.

Can you please remove the A record 208.91.197.27 for both thehyacinth.com and www.thehyacinth.com from your Network Solutions domain management? Then your domain should be pointing to Yola. Please allow 48 hours for the change to propagate on the internet fully before testing if your domain is pointing to Yola.

If you need more assistance with this, please let us know and we will be happy to help you further.

You will also find detailed instructions in our tutorial Publish to a domain you already own.
