I had my yola redirect to another site, but now I want the url to go to my normal Yola site. I think I need to do something in my dns as I deleted the entry that redirected to my other site. Help!

Hi Ben,

I think the first thing to do is to unpublish your other site to free up the domain for further use by yourself.

If you have created your normal site within Yola, then just publish your site as directed by this tutorial

If your domain is managed by Yola it shouldn't be a problem as you have said that the pointing DNS record to your other site has been deleted. There may be a delay in propagation and I guess could take up to 48 hours but I doubt that it would be that long. I haven't seen this situation before Ben and it really made me think in first principles again. I don't have any experience with this specific example so I apologise if there's something that I have overlooked.

My domain is www.dynamicmagic.co.uk which is purchased through Yola. I set it up to redirect to that site made on a different web maker thing. I deleted that account so dont know what to put in my dns server to make it go to the Yola site on the same account!

OK.

Have you deleted the DNS record from "that other site" Ben? If so try following the tutorial I linked to above.. I presume you are talking about the DNS management facility n Yola?

The process is to publish your site and that's where the auto DNS will link you up. In that process it will show you your available domains and I would think that dynamicmagic.co.uk will be the domain that will be in the publishing dialogue. I doubt whether you will have to add anything into the DNS settings I think that the tutorial will cover you, but as I said it's a novel experience. Unless there is something different with.co.uk domains, I think you have a good chance that it will work.

It says my site is published at www.dynamicmagic.co.uk. When you to that address it is unfound. I think I have something wrong or I deleted something in my DNS server management inside Yola. I got the domain from GBBO

Hi Ben,

I have just worked on your account for a bit of time and am happy to assure you that your site is now loading to the Yola created site just fine:
