Hi Sementoi,

It would actually work with both www.mydomain.yolasite.com and http://mydomain.yolasite.com.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need any further assistance.

How long would it takes for the www.subdomain.mydomain.com to work after I set it up.
So far only the http://subdomain.mydomain.com works.

Hi Sementoi,

If you would like your subdomain to work with and without the 'www' on a Yola site you've built, you'll need to have two A Records:
1. Under "Name" add the subdomain you would like to use (eg. group).
2. Under "Value" add Yola's IP address (208.75.208.172).
3. On the second A Record, under "Name" add *.name (where name is your subdomain) and the IP address is the same.

By default, your address will not have the 'www' but will redirect to http://subdomain.mydomain.com. If you would like us to change that, then you will need to send us an email so that we can do it for you.
