Hello ashnaccess,

There are two options available to you:

1. You keep Yola as your domain host and edit your settings so that they point to GoDaddy. This means that your site will be hosted with GoDaddy (as you're using their website hosting) but your domain is managed by us. You would pay Yola the annual domain renewal fee. For information on managing your domain: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/article....

2. You transfer your domain to GoDaddy so that they manage the domain as well as your website hosting.

I hope that helps!

Hello ashnacess

You can transfer your domain to GoDaddy but they will now become the domain registrar of your domain . However, your site that you created with Yola will continue to be hosted by us. Does that clear up the confusion? Please let me know if you still have further questions.

I just also wanted to add that if you are a Yola Free user, and you decide to transfer your domain to GoDaddy and then point that domain to Yola - this will not be possible after tomorrow. You will need to be a Yola Siver user to take advantage of this feature (Yola Free users who are currently pointing their domain will still be able to keep pointing).
