Beginning on September 11, 2013 your site’s web address will be changed to this address format“yoursite.homestead.com”. After September 11, 2013 visitors to your old“yoursite.intuitwebsites.com” address, will automatically be redirected to your new Homestead address. This redirect will remain in place until November 1, 2013.
To continue driving traffic to your site, you’ll need to update any marketing campaigns to include your new site address, such as:


  • Email marketing campaigns

  • Pay-per-click campaigns, such as Google AdWords

  • Online advertising campaigns

  • Printed materials, including flyers, brochures and business cards

  • Print advertisements

  • Links from directories or partners who link to your site

Sorry this is a confusing topic for everyone.

If you have registered your own domain name and have always used it to access your site and for marketing purposes, you won't need to take any action.

To clarify the change, whenever a new site is created, our system automatically assigns every website a "site name" which is a sub-domain of either Intuit. or Homestead and would look like: "yoursite.intuitwebsites.com" or "yoursite.homestead.com". Think of the "site name" (or sub-domain) as a replacement for the "www". It gives you a way to access your website by piggy-backing onto Homesteads domain.

You need to take action if:
If you have never registered a personal domain name of your own and are using "yoursite.intuitwebsites.com" as the main url for accessing and marketing your site, then you will need to start using "yoursite.homestead.com" instead.
