Unpublishing your website

If you decide that you no longer want your site to be live on the internet, you can easily unpublish it. Your site will then no longer be accessible to the public.

To unpublish your site:

1. In your Sitebuilder, go to Settings > Publishing.

2. Click Unpublish Site

5. Your site is now unpublished.

Please note: If you had your site published to a subdomain and you unpublish it, your subdomain becomes available to be used by other people. If you published your site to a domain purchased through Yola, or a domain you purchased elsewhere, you will keep your domain.

You can republish your site at any time, by clicking Publish. You can choose to purchase, and publish your site to a Yola custom domain, a Yola subdomain or to a custom domain you've purchased elsewhere. If you wish to use the Yola custom domain you've already purchased, you can follow the instructions here: 

  1. Log in to your Yola account.
  2. Locate the correct site name.
  3. Click Domain settings, located below your site's name.
  4. Next to "Add an existing domain" select the domain you wish to assign to your site and click Add.
  5. Choose which site you would like the domain assigned to.
  6. Click Save.
