I would like to have our domain name (euccvalleycity.org) match our website name. Is it possible to do this without starting over entirely from scratch? If you type in the domain name it goes to the correct place. But if you just google search you get the website name, which is different and confusing to people. Our church website is named bbcambrosejr.homestead.com.

Hello,

I do see that the domain is pulling up the correct content which is great. If you would like to change the bbcambrosejr.homestead.com name to match the domain you can rename the site by going to websites manger and select rename. This will rename the site url which will not interrupt anything with your domain and you will not need to rebuild anything.

Hello. I followed the above instructions to rename the site URL. The good news is that the bbcambrosejr domain now redirects to the homestead website. The bad news is that euccvalleycity.org goes to a broken page with no redirect. So our website is now completely un-reachable. Suggestions please?

Do you know if you are pointing your domain to Homestead using a site url point? If so, since you updated the site url you will also need to update the pointing with godaddy.  It may still be pointing to bbcambrosejr.homestead.com. and it will need top be updated to euccvalleycity.homestead.com

I was able to make an adjustment at godaddy through their domain manager -- "traffic" is now being forwarded to euccvalleycity.homestead.com. And it seems to be working! Thanks for your help.
