search engines no longer finding site

My Sudbury Valley Nature Photographers site is no longer showing up in web searches.  I know that there was a billing problem, but that was corrected over a week ago.

This conversation is no longer open for comments or replies and is no longer visible to community members.

@wayne2476https://svnp.homestead.com/ is online.

You may want your website to read www.svnp.com. If so, Review:

Hello, 

Your website is working, but websites using .homestead.com site names are not indexed by search engines. You would need to use an actual domain name.

You would need to purchase a domain name:

Well, I did that last week - new domain is www.svnpweb.com.  Search engines still don't seem to be finding it.
