Starting with free domain and then swapping to paid domain?

I purchased my domain name and then built my site with yola. I was very keen to get it live so I used the suggested free yola domain. When I finally work out how to point my other domain in the right direction, can I swap to it - or am I stuck with the free yola?

Hi,

As far as i know, yes you most certainly can. Should you need help in doing this (and when you are ready), let us know.

Hello boxedplay,

If you are wanting to use an externally-bought domain, please note that you need to have Yola Silver if you wish to use the domain pointing feature. You can find instructions on how to point your domain here: Publish to a domain you already own. You can also find instructions on that tutorial for adding a Yola-bought domain.

Thanks. I have upgraded to Silver and godaddy says it is right but it is a Yola problem. Waiting on a Yola reply. Maybe I should go in again and try publishing with my domain.
