Hi there. My site went live yesterday after re-pointing to a domain registered elsewhere. However, the address displaying in the URL bar includes the .yolasite bit which I think is confusing for our visitors as the address we are giving out does not have this. Also, a friend of mine has a yolasite which displays her url without the yolasite addition so I think it must be possible to have it removed? Please help! Thanks.

Hello Becky,

This can be setup following the tutorial: My domain is redirecting to my Yolasite subdomain

Hi. Thanks for this. I have followed these steps. It appears to show that www.barneyandjudes.org.uk is the primary domain but when I click 'change display' to update it it then tells me:

Successfully updated your display name to: barneyandjudes.yolasite.com

and when I leave the page and go into it again it has reverted the primary domain to the yolasite one. Please help!

Thanks
Becy

Make www.barneyandjudes.org.uk your primary domain and not barneyandjudes.yolasite.com

Hi Stefan,
Yes please - I have made www.barneyandjudes.org.uk my primary domain as I said but it seems not to work and to revert to the yolasite one when I leave the page.
Thanks

Hello Becky

This may have been a caching issue. When I open barneyandjudes.yolasite.com or barneyandjudes.org.uk, I'm redirected to your custom domain barneyandjudes.org.uk either way. It looks like your settings have successfully taken effect.
