Hi I,

To point your domain to Yola, you will need to use the steps outlined on this link: http://www.yola.com/customer-support/....

If your domain registrar will not allow you to add or edit A Records on your domain, and only gives you access to name servers, then you can use the services of ZoneEdit. We have those steps available on this link: http://www.yola.com/customer-support/....

Basically you will be able to use ZoneEdit's name servers and then create an A Record on ZoneEdit to point to Yola. This takes a bit longer than normal DNS changes but it's the only workaround available in this case.

Thanks. Just so others who read this will know - I contacted my domain registrar and told them what I needed. They did it for me.

Excellent. I am glad they helped you! As a matter of interest, who is your domain registrar?

josthosting.com - really terrific people - not in it for the money, that's for sure! and VERY inexpensive. they also offer hosting for less than I've ever seen anywhere else but i like your web design templates and how easy you make things so.... well here I am.
