I need to add another URL that will link to my website. Bear with me, because I'm not particularly computer literate. Right now the url www.twlc-newjersey.comlinks to my website, which I've constructed with Homestead. I've recently moved from NJ to SC, kept many clients in NJ, but also want to build up my business locally. So I need people to be able to reach my website via the original URL but also via, for instance, www.twlc-southcarolina.com. Is this possible? Is that considered an extra domain, or a subdomain? Thanks very much for any help you can give me.

This would be considered a new domain, and it would just be a matter of purchasing that domain. Both domains will pull up the same site.

Do I need to purchase the domain through Homestead or can I go to another registrar, like GoDaddy or NameCheap.  The fees for purchasing and keeping a domain name through Homestead are quite a bit more than some of the others.

You can purchase it through another company if you would like, and then point it to Homestead.

Thanks, Elyzabeth.  Would you be able to show me how to do that?
