I would like to point my domain name with the .rocks extension. May I do this? I did not see the options in the drop down menu.

Unfortunately, we can't register those names, but if you register the name at another registrar, we can assist you in pointing it to a Homestead website.

Hello Drew,

My goal is to host my website with Homestead. I have my own domain name which has a unique extension; .Rocks (that's DOT Rocks) with Godaddy. 

As you know there are many new extensions available now. Homestead has only 8 standard extensions in its dropdown menu. So I'm a bit stuck. I built a website under songwritingcontestrocks.homestead.com. You can find it on Websites Manager.

I'd like to use my songwritingcontest.rocks for this Homestead site I have made.

Can you please point this for me?

Thank you very much,

Carrll

I have added the point on our end. Have you made the DNS changes at the domain host. If you need assistance we can help, but we need to know if there is or will be email at this domain so we can give you the best option

Thanks Drew,

Yes I have made the DNS changes on Godaddy. I don't need an email setup. I will see if the site works in the next few days. If not, I'll let you know.

Thank you kindly,

Carrll

It should be working by tomorrow at the latest, if not already.

Hi Drew,

My site www.songwritingcontest.rocks wont come up. Is the reason for this the odd extension?

Godaddy says it looks ok on their end.  I changed the them to: NS1.MDNSSERVICE.COM
NS2.MDNSSERVICE.COM
NS3.MDNSSERVICE.COM    

Can you give me some insight with the problem please?!

Regards,

Carrll

It needs to be added to our system to direct it to the correct site. These new extensions need to be added on our end. Which site should it be pointed to?

Should be there now. It might take a little propagation time.
