I have bought a domain name through yola with a free account, when you type it in, the website displays but in the address bar the website name changes to one ending in yolasite.com, when entering the google webmaster code do I need to get the code for my domain name that I have purchased or the one which is displayed in the address bar ending in yolasite.com?

Hello,
Can you let me know what your domain name is and I can make the custom domain the primary for you so that it does not re-direct to the subdomain. You will then need to verify your site with Google Webmaster using your custom domain.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

I've verified with google webmaster my bought domain name now :) Thanks
Sorry one more question .. I already submitted my subdomain name to google when I first made my website.. as I didn't think I was going to buy a custom domain name. Do I need to delete this from google search via google as I now have a custom domain published?

No, you don't have to delete it. Once Google sees that the domain is not live anymore, they will remove it from their index. Were you able to make your custom domain the primary for your site, it's not redirecting to the yolasite.com subdomain I hope.

If I can assist you further please let me know.

Kind Regards,
Emmy
