Changing your name servers

You may need to change your domain's name servers if you want to connect your domain to a website hosted by another provider.

Note: If you have Yola Mail and want to keep it after changing the name servers, you need to copy the CNAME (canonical name) and MX (mail exchange) records associated with Yola Mail. 


CNAME record:

  • Name: mail
  • Value:​​

MX record: 

  • Value:
  • Priority: 0 (or 1 if your DNS provider does not allow setting 0 priority)

After you change the name servers, add these two records to your new provider settings so that Yola Mail stays active.

How to change your name servers

Follow these steps:: 

  1. When in the My Yola dashboard, click Domains in the Topbar.


  2. Click the Advanced settings link next to the domain you want to edit.


  3. Click the Set up name servers tab to expand it.


  4. Enter the new name servers in the respective fields.


  5. If you need to add more than two entries, type them into the  Additional name servers fields.


  6. Click the Update name servers button when you’re done.
