I currently have a yola website, and really WANT to upgrade to the individual domain name. Once I create a domain name using "myname.com", how will I edit my page? Will I go through yola just as I did before??

hi keger1183,

for u 2 swich your domain onto your site then follow these intructions.

1. login into your account,
2. then go to the site that u want your NEW domain to go onto,
3. click the arrow next to the big green 'Publish to the web'
4. click onto 'add a domain you own'
5. type in the address,
6. click check,
7. then press ok,
8. then click on the big green 'publish to the web'

then it should work.

PS make sure that the domain is pointing to yola IP address which is if you don't know how to do it then please come bk to this topic and tell us where you got your domain from.

Thanks.. but that wasn't the question I was asking. I was wondering how I EDIT my page once I publish it to the web using my individual domain name.

Hi Keger,

You will still be able to edit your account with Yola even though you have your own domain. Having your own domain is allowing you to eliminate the .yola.com in your address.

Simply sign in to your account like you normally do, edit what you need to and save or publish your page. Your page will still be updated with the changes you made using Yola even when you have switched to your own domain name!

I hope this helps!
