I have a domain name registered with Crazy Domains, but think I prefer Yola to create my website.
What is the difference between transferring a domain name to Yola, or pointing yola site to other domain name provider? Is there a cost difference? Complications with being split over two providers?

Hi rutharmishaw

When you transfer your domain to Yola, then you will have both your domain name and website hosted with us. The benefits of having everything hosted with us, is that we will be able to help you should anything to wrong with either of the hosting services.

If you would like to keep you hosting separated, then you can do so. You will need to configure your domain to point to Yola's IP address. However, we are not able to assist you with this process, as we do not have access to your account or the hosting environment should anything to wrong. You will need to contact Crazy Domains directly for assistance should there be any complications with the domain hosting. We have a tutorial which explains the process of pointing your domain, here: Publish to a domain you already own.

If you host with Yola, the fee is $ 34.95 per year, which is renewable each year. The cost per year is reduced if you renew for 2 or more years at a time. If you choose to transfer your domain to Yola, then there is a transfer fee of $34.95 which includes an additional year of registration - we add one year to any time you have left on your existing domain registration. This cost includes all registration fees incurred. Please see our tutorial, Transferring your domain to Yola, for more details.

I hope this helps you to decide how you would like to manage your domain and website hosting. If you have any more questions, please let us know.

Thank you

Hi rutharmishaw,

I just thought that I would add that domain pointing is not available to Free Yola users.
