Creating subdomains with your Yola-bought domain

If you have a domain purchased from Yola you can create subdomains using the Advanced Domain Settings to set up CNAME records.

Please note: Changing your domain settings can result in your site no longer working. Please be sure you understand the consequence of the changes you are making.

  1. Log in to My Yola.
  2. Click on "Domains" and then click on "Advanced settings" for the domain you want to edit.
  3. To access the CNAME records, click on "Change your DNS settings".
  4. To add a CNAME record, click on "Add DNS Record".
  5. Select "CNAME" from the drop-down menu for the first CNAME record.
  6. Under "Name" add the subdomain you would like to use (e.g., "group").
  7. Under "Value" enter this value: premiumhosting.yolasite.net
  8. Click Update.
  9. Click on "Add DNS Record" to add a second record.
  10. Select "CNAME" from the drop-down menu for the second CNAME record.
  11. On the second CNAME record, under "Name" add www.name (where "name" is your subdomain, e.g., "group")
  12. Under "Value" enter this value: premiumhosting.yolasite.net
  13. Click Update.
Once published, your subdomain will be available as "group.mysite.com" and "www.group.mysite.com" (replace "group" with your subdomain name).

It is not currently possible to publish to your own subdomain, so once you've created the DNS settings, please send an email to support@yola.com with a request to publish your site to your subdomain. Remember to specify the site and the subdomain.

It's easy to take your business online with Yola.
