So i was just wondering. This may just be because i am an idiot or whatever, but is there any way to get a shorter link to my site? The only one i can seem to get is the SItebuilder one thats way too long for me to use in the ways that i want to. I just want a short link ><

Hello Richard

You select your website address when you publish it. Have you done this yet? If not, here are the instructions:

When you publish a site you have an option to publish to a free subdomain or to purchase a first level (dot com) domain. Click on the yellow "Publish My Site" button. A dialog box will open up and you can either:

1. You can buy your own domain by selecting "Get a custom domain", enter your desired domain name in the box provided and availability will be checked. Follow the prompts of registering your domain and purchasing it with either PayPal or a credit card. Once you purchase the domain we will take care of setting up everything for you and your site will be up and running in under 48 hours.
2. You can publish to a free subdomain by clicking on "Get a Yola subdomain", filling in the first box and follow the prompts to publish your site.

If you have a domain you have purchased elsewhere, please click here for a tutorial on how to set it up to point to your Yola website: [Publish to a domain you already own ](http://www.yola.com/customer-support/....

If you ever need to check what your website address is, you can do this by clicking on the drop down arrow next to the yellow "Update my Site" button. Then click on "Publishing Settings". A dialog box will open up that will show you your website address.

Please let me know if this does not answer your question.

Well i did all that, i just can't remember what it was. Is there any way to find out what it is again, or is there something that i am missing?

I am using one of the Free sites, Blackwood-Tavern-And-inn, but the only URL i ever get is the Sitebuilder Then a bunch of numbers, etc etc.

Hi Richard

You can find your domain name or address in two places:

1. Click on the "Site Manager" tab, you will see your site name in blue letters underneath "Current Site", this is a link to your live site.
2. Click on the down arrow next to the "Update my Site" button and click on "Publishing Settings", your URL will be in dialogue box that opens.

Please let me know if you are still unable to find it.
