Hi Zoe,

It can take up to 48 hours for DNS settings to propagate if you mean you are pointing your domain to us. Have you followed the steps in this tutorial?

We can check the settings if you reply with your domain name.

Hello Zoe

When I click on the link your provided, your Yola website is displayed fine for me. So the domain pointing has worked out and your website is up and running!

And guess what, I already know your next question: How can you make the URL in your browser address bar display as :-)

You will find the necessary steps to do this in our tutorial Domain is redirecting to Yola subdomain.

Let us know if you need more assistance.
