Creating subdomains with your Yola-bought domain

If you have a domain purchased from Yola you can create subdomains using the Advanced Domain Settings and setting up A 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 A records, click on "Change your DNS settings".
  4. To add an A record, click on "Add DNS Record".
  5. Select "A" from the drop-down menu for the first A record.
  6. Under "Name" add the subdomain you would like to use (e.g., "group").
  7. Under "Value" add Yola's IP address: 184.72.229.176
  8. Select "A" from the drop-down menu for the second A record.
  9. On the second A record, under "Name" add *.name (where "name" is your subdomain) and add the same IP address as the previous A record.
  10. Your subdomain is then available as "www.group.mysite.com" (replace "group" with your subdomain name).
As it is not currently possible to publish to your own subdomain, 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.
