Hi sharen tan,

As you are a Yola Silver account holder, if you have already bought a domain somewhere else, you can use it to publish your Yola site. You do this by creating A records (address record) to point to this IP address: "184.72.229.176". You will need to do this configuration yourself and the method for doing so varies from registrar to registrar. You will need to log in to your account with your domain registrar and create 2 A Records (Address Record) to point to this IP address: 184.72.229.176. One A Record for WWW and another one for @.

We have a tutorial outlining the steps to configuring your domain: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/article....

If you have any difficulty with the above instructions, you will need to contact your domain registrar for support.

I hope this helps!

Hi sharen

I merged your other forum post with this one because it is dealing with the same issue. Yola has one IP address.

If you would like to point your domain to Yola so that you can use it to publish your website, then you need to create two A Records with the same Yola IP address, 184.72.229.176. One A Record is WWW and the other one is @. Both must have the Yola IP address, not two different ones.

I hope this helps! Let us know if you are still having trouble pointing your domain.

Hello Sharen,

If you have pointed your domain towards Yola, you may have to wait for upto 48 hours before the changes propagate to the web.

You need to make sure that you have the two A record pointing to Yola.

To test whether the domain is pointed towards Yola, type in the domain name in your URL bar and if it comes up with a Yola message, it is pointed correctly and all you will need to do is publish from the SiteBuilder.

Hope this helps,

Andi

May i know secondary IP address for Yola ? Because domainregistry.my request secondary IP address.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
