As I reported earlier I am moving one of my websites away from Yola. So far the process has been relatively painless except for the moving the Blog which was the main reason for moving in the first place. Because Yola was my Host as well as my Registrar I needed to move my Domain name to a new registrar. I use GoDaddy already so I moved my domain name there. Basically you just follow the steps for Godaddy for transferring a domain. You will need to get a transfer code from your initial registrar first. Then begin the GoDaddy Process.
The process with Godaddy took about a week. Between Yola releasing the Domain and Godaddy completing the move. Then it took about 48 hours for all of the forwarding to really work properly between Godaddy and Google sites.
I learned a valuable lesson here. Always back your site up and own that domain.
