I have had nothing but problems with Yola. I have tried the fourms to try and fix it, I called phone support. Nothing helps, I am done with Yola. How do I transfer my domain to wordpress?

Hello Stephanie,

I am sorry you are feeling this way.

You have 2 options when moving your domain away form Yola.

Option 1: You can edit your DNS settings so that your domain points to your new provider. Depending Wordpress, it would either be editing nameservers or creating an A Record. This means that you will still get a renewal reminder from us 11 months after purchase and your domain would stay with Yola. If you choose this option, please view this tutorial: . DNS for your domain purchased from Yola

Option 2: We can release your domain so that it is transferred to another domain registrar completely.

If you choose this option, you will receive an email with a code from us that you can give to your new domain registrar. Then to unlock and transfer your domain, follow the steps on this link: Transfer your domain to a new domain registrar.

With this option domain registrars require a mandatory 60-day waiting period between purchase and transfers. This is something beyond our control. If it less than 60 days since you purchased the domain from Yola, you will be unable to transfer it.

I hope this helps. If you need any further assistance, please let me know.

Could you please help me transfer my domain to wordpress i'm having trouble with the Custom DNS Records as in,

Record formats
Five types of records are allowed: MX, TXT, CNAME, A, and SRV. We use a minimalistic format for each record type, shown below. TTL is set automatically. When validating, we only check that your records can be safely saved.

Sample records
TXT v=spf1 ~all
A webmail
SRV _xmpp-client._tcp 10 10 5269

if someone could help me that would be great.

For those that decide to quit Yola and would like to move to wordpress (each one has a different set of trade-offs so it ́s normal that there ́s a flow of users from one to the other, in any direction) we are now offering a service that automates the migration of the data:
