Can you explain what you want to change? The domain onebritewhitesmile.com is operating correctly, onebritewhitesmile.yolasite.com seems to come up with a older version of the site.

Hi onebeautifulimagebydee,

The easiest solution for this is to remove your sub-domain onebritewhitesmile.yolasite.com because the information in this sub-domain is different to your custom domain. To remove a site

If you wish to keep your the contents of onebritewhitesmile.yolasite.com then your best solution is to change the name.

If you wish to re-direct your onebritewhitesmile.yolasite.com to your custome domain onebritewhitesmile.com then you would need to unpublish your onebritewhitesmile.com
Select your onebritewhitesmile.yolasite.com
Re-publish this then to your onebritewhitesmile.com

Thanks Gop, I get it now she wants to redirect to new domain. There is one other solution, then she can keep both domains in operation but both appearing with the new site @ onebritewhitesmile.com
It would involve adding the following html to every page on the old site;

All you need to change is the domain part.

Hi onebeautifulimagebydee,

In addition to the excellent advice provided by Gop and Sam, if you would like to publish your site to your domain and subdomain, you can also take a look at this tutorial about assigning domains: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/article....

Hope this helps!

Hi Gop,

That is absolutely correct, and is definitely something to avoid. However, the tutorial provided contains steps for publishing a single site to multiple domains, so that hopefully wouldn't be a problem.

A redirect as mentioned in effect in my first explanation overcomes the issue of duplicate content.

Multiple discrete domains will possibly get you penalised.
