I have made a premium website on wix.com and would like to set the domain name to one I have purchased from Yola. I used to have it pointing to a domain name from network solutions where the domain name was pointing to wix.
Anybody know how to set it up so my Yola domain name links to the website from wix.com

Thanks, dave

Hi, David,

Here are the instructions you need to follow on Yola in order to point your domain to Wix's IP address:

Login to your Yola account and make sure you are on the "My Yola" page.
Click on "Domains" and then click on "Advanced settings" next to the domain name.
To access the A Record, click on "Change your DNS settings".
To add an A Record, click on "Add DNS Record".
Make sure that "A" is selected (you'll need to add two A Records) if you would like your domain to work with 'www' and without):
In the first A Record, leave the name blank and paste the IP address in the Value field. The IP address you should use is: 216.139.213.144
In the second A Record, add 'www' under the name and paste the IP address in the Value field.
The original A Records will still remain but be overwritten.
Please note that it can take up to 48 hours for this change to fully propagate across the internet.
