I own a domain with Yola. I am moving to Wordpress and need to use the same domain. Wordpress provided me their DNS settings. I tried changing it but it won't let me. Can someone help me make this change? Thank you inadvance

Hi Gaming Weez,

Have you unpublished your site before attempting to change your DNS settings?

Hi GW,

There are a number of options within the domain management section. Have a look at the tutorials Managing your domain bought from Yola. Section 4

I followed directions (I think) and my mobile is showing the new redirect (that is, gamingweez.com redirects to new website), but PC and iPad isn't working yet. Any reason why this could occur?

Hi Gaming Weez,

I can confirm that your site is loading properly on my computer:



There is a chance that your computer has stored your old site in it's cache. Please try clearing your browser's cache, here's how: clear cache.

If that doesn't help you to see the Wordpress site being displayed, certainly let us know.
