I got to Yola from gybo and I'm trying to set up a website. The programme (Canadian, eh) is assuming I need a domain name and won't let me past the step of requesting a new domain. I already have a couple domain names that I would like to use. Is there any way to do this?

Hi, Paul,

The GYBO offer is for a .ca domain and you do need to take it to use the system. In order to use your existing domains, you can then take advantage of the Yola Silver offer and point your domains to your Yola website. It is possible to assign multiple domains to one website. Please let us know and we can give you specific instructions when you are ready.

Hi Paul,

The Get Your Business Online program offers a free .ca domain and discounted Silver packages to Canadian small businesses. In order to take advantage of the program, you do need to redeem the .ca domain that is part of the package. As you mentioned you already own domains, you can register a new .ca domain related to those, or an entirely new one.

Once you have registered your new domain, you can either transfer your existing domains to Yola or take advantage of the discounted Silver package and point your published Yola site to your existing domains.

Hope that helps!
