I have added an A record to Lycos, my domain registrar. When I enter the website address ( a Yola page shows up (not the old Tripod site) that says the address is pointed to Yola, but not published. When I go through the steps in Yola to add the address to my account, I'm told it's not pointed to Yola.

Hi reliancefiremuseum

I have checked the A Records and it looks like the domain is not yet pointed to Yola. It still has the Lycos IP address.

Please note that it can take up to 48 hours for this change to happen on the web. Also please note that you should have 2 A Records pointed to Yola: one for www and another one for @.

You can see more details here: Publish to a domain you already own.

You can check whether your domain is pointed, at this site: Enter your domain in the "Domain" field and click on "Look it up". The A Record will display in the window below.

You should see the A Records with this IP Address - That means that your domain is pointed to Yola correctly.

Hope this helps!
