Hello Jayne,

To publish to an externally purchased domain name that is pointed to Yola, you need to have a Yola Silver account or transfer the domain to Yola. Here is a link with more information: Publish to a domain you already own.

If your domain name is pointed to Yola and going to our placeholder page, this means that it is properly pointed and you can now publish your site to it from inside the Sitebuilder.

If you already have Yola Silver you will have the option of adding a domain you already own to your site when you publish your site.

Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Kind Regards,
Emmy
