Having problem transferring my domain back to Homestead from a third-party hoster. I have followed the instructions from other posts, but have received error message that I already have a website associated with that name. I followed a chat from 5 years ago where Mike of Homestead replied to someone else that: " Since it was set up as the primary domain on the account, we'll have to do it from our end. Just let us know when you are ready and we'll remove it for you. FYI... it is important to know that when we delete the domain, and you begin the transfer possible it is possible and very likely that your site will be down for approximately 3-5 days. Also, if you currently have any email accounts associated with the domain, they will be down also. Once the domain transfer is complete, you'll be able to recreate any email accounts if you need to.

Would someone please do the same for me? Also, I do not know whether I will be able to use the website that the third party hoster built for me or whether I have to rebuild it. Please advise. Thank you.

Your domain appears to be hosted with us at this time, but you are pointing the domain to another host. You can add a website hosting package to the account and build your site then change the pointing when ready. This will minimize the down time. You would have to build the site using our builder.
