How to I get the URL bar in the browser to retain my domain name when the page loads?

To clarify; when I type www.rtb2walks.co.uk the page loads but the URL in the tool bar changes to http://rtb2walks.yolasite.com/

How do I get it to stay on my purchaced URL?

Hi Rob.B,

It should retain the domain name in the browser ad bar not redirect to the subdomain.

When you sign into Yola you get to a page called 'my sites'

If you scroll down to the bottom you will see 'enable advanced domain settings' -- click that



Then click the Advanced Domain Settings link and you will see soemthing like this - make sure your domain is set as the primary domain and not the subdomain.



After a few weeks/months when all your traffic is directing to the domain name i would just go ahead and unpublish your old subdomain.
