I have my authorization code from WIX to transfer to my current site on Homestead (Over40Skin.com) but can't find where to put the authorization code? The additional domain I'm trying to point from WIX is ofab40.com which I USED to have with Homestead so trying to get both domains there.

Hello,

After you initiate the domain for transfer into Homestead. You will, at some point, receive an email that request the authorization code. https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/how_do_i_transfer_my_domain_to_homestead

I DID get the code, which is a1#5rjd9ij6, but there is NO WHERE to put it on Homestead.  When I go into Domains and select "I all ready have one" then enter ofab40.com, it tells me someone else owns it.  So I never get beyond that point.  Please stop putting me in a box of standard answers.

It shows the domain was still associated to an old account that you may have had previously when that domain was registered with Homestead. I have removed it and it will allow you to enter the domain for transfer without receiving the error that someone else owns it.

No problem. Please let me know if it still provides an error.

It shows completed under domain, but I can not get the domain address to pull up anything.  I just get Page Not Found. I've read the other community answers, tried everything possible, deleted cookies and nothing.  Either domain should pull up my website on WebBuilder, right?

Have you associated your domain with a site yet? On the domains page.

I hate to admit I don't know what you mean or how to do it?

Hello,

I have just checked and am seeing that over40skin.com is coming up as your Homestead site and is showing as secure. I also ran a test and am seeing that the domain has transferred to Homestead successfully, so it is complete.

With Website Builder, you can have one domain directly associated and pointing to the site, of which is the over40skin.com domain name. If you would like, I can go through the process for you to add a domain pointing only site, associate ofab40.com to it, and URL point it to over40skin.com. This means when someone types ofab40.com, it would automatically redirect to over40skin.com. Would you like me to make this change for you?

Yes please!  That's what I was looking to do originally because I had to much marketing material with the OFAB40.com .  Sorry but I'm not too up on the techno part of all this, so thank you for your help!

Hi, Everything is done! I am showing that ofab40.com is now redirecting over40skin.com to on my end. Please allow up to 24 hours for the internet to pick up this change.
