I just tried to get help from chat support with Web.com regarding the ability for Homestead account holders to log in to their account. Why are Homestead account holders directed to Web.com when www.homestead.com is what is entered in the URL? And then, once on Web.com not allowed to log in to our accounts!  The Web.com chat support tech, John, basically told me "to bad, so sad".  He said Homestead has their own support team and you need to deal with them. He also said here is the special link you need to use if you want Homesteads login:  https://www.homestead.com/~site/login/?TARGET=%2f%7esite%2fHelp%2fHelp%5fPage%2effhtml

I have still not been able to login to my ACCOUNT just this community forum!

I have tried to get help regarding Gmail account recipients that are being kicked back to me, unsent, due to my email host provider not being properly authenticated! I have yet to receive any response on this issue!

Homestead has not merged with Web.com, they are two completely separate entities. We are simply both owned by the same company. That is why their support cannot assist you. When you go to homestead.com to log in, please give the page a moment to load first. This should stop the redirect to the Web.com log in.

As for your email issue, can you go ahead and try once more? I have updated the TXT SPF record for your domain which should allow it to begin working properly.
