So I built a website for our organization using the domain dreamsunitedministry.org just until the time where I was able to transfer dreamsunited.org from godaddy to homestead.

That is now done and I want to use dreamsunited.org as the primary domain and forward dreamsunitedministry.org to dreamsunited.org but I can't see to get it figured out how to get it to switch in homestead website builder. Please help :(

Hello Timothy6151

You cannot have 2 domains connected to a website builder site. I would recommend URL pointing from GoDaddy, which might be easiest, or you would need to create a second site in the Homestead account to move a domain to, and then point to the second domain from there.

That sounds like a terrible design in general and wouldn't have transferred the godaddy domain over in the first place if I knew that. Lol

Well is there a way to disassociate a site with a domain so I can just associate the transferred domain with the site? Without losing the original domain?

After talking it over, we have decided to just delete the temporary domain dreamsunitedministry.org but I guess the system still sees that site as associated with the website and still won't let me associate the transferred domain dreamsunited.org

Hello Timothy6151

I can see you only have one domain on the account and it is working to pull up the account, so it looks like you got that working.
