Yes, you can switch to a domain hosting only package.
May I ask if you have tried the new Websitebuilder? I would like to know what would prompt you to want to move. Maybe the new editor will have the features you need.

That's great - thanks!  How much would it cost to keep my domain with Homestead? The reason I'm switching is that I found a template I really liked with another company. The other issue I had is that within the Homestead website editor, I had to completely delete my current site if I wanted to change my template without even being able to see what my options would be. I did check out the few templates on Homestead's homepage but I just liked the one I found a lot better. I haven't had any issues with the website and domain services themselves and I do really like the analytics that you provide.

The domain hosting package is $14.99 per year. it will allow you 1 email address as well if you need it.

Thank you Drew!  This is exactly what I need including the one email address. Can you help me make this change to my account or do I need to contact someone else?

Hey Michelle0553

If you can log into your Homestead account > Go into Websites Manager > Choose the site MichelleWiesner0.homestead.com > and choose "Delete this site" from the options below
Please keep in mind, this is a permanent change and any pictures or content on the site you have built with us will not be available to you anymore.

Once you have deleted that, let me know and I will make the change on your account to downgrade to domain hosting.

Hi there. I have deleted the site. If you could switch  me to the domain-only plan with an email address, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you again for your help!
