Hello chamika,

You don't need name servers from Yola, to utilize a domain name you have purchased elsewhere for your website built with Yola you will just need to configure the A Record to point towards our ip address.

Here is a thread here in the forum where Jeremy has given the instructions for getting this set up: Using an all ready registered domain.

Kind Regards,

from what i understand you dont have to change the nameservers - you have to set up A NAME records to point at Yola servers.

How to configure a domain name you already own:

1. Log in to your chosen domain registrar (eg. GoDaddy.com, Register.com).
2. Go to the DNS Management page.
3. Set up an A Record.
4. The IP address of your record must point to: "208.75.208.172"

then also publish your Yola site to your domain name - changes to DNS can take up to 48 hours.
