Address Confusion

I have a .org domain name. When I enter this into the browser....it goes directly to my site...but in the browser it reads homesteadcloud.com. Is there a way to change it so that only my .org domain name is seen for all pages? It is causing confusion.

Example: mysite.org vs mysite.homesteadcloud.com

IF the domain was secured with/by Homestead when you built your website... if this link works while you are logged in -->  https://www.homestead.com/~site/jws/mydomains.action --> there is a MANAGER YOUR WEBSITE DOMAIN link... PERHAPS this will be where to make a change to allow your website to ONLY appear as .org (???)    I will have to be doing this in the future...have an existing Homestead site with the .com address (not sure HOW, it's been TOO MANY YEARS), but building a NEW site with the .homesteadcloud.com extension...  once the new site is completed, will be pointing the existing .com domain to the new/updated site.  Hope this is helpful.  Obviously, you can call support (when they are in the office) and someone can assist?

It looks to me like the domain is actually set to forward to the .homesteadcloud.com address on GoDaddys end. I would look at your GoDaddy account to remove this forward and follow the steps in this article to secure your website:
