Hi,
Since I learned my site Hearth-at-Home on homestead is not mobile I went ahead and pointed the domain, http://www.hearth-at-home.net back to my blog. I purchased the domain, http://www.home-at-hearth.com and would like it associated with the current site Home at Hearth on homestead that hearth-at-home.net was pointed to. Is this possible and can I get help to do so please. I don't seem to be getting the job done.
Thanks

Hello,

It is possible to connect home-at-hearth.com to the Homestead site that hearth-at-home.net was pointing to. Here is instructions on how to connect the home-at-hearth.com to the previous site. https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/how_can_i_switch_my_domain_to_a_new_site_i_built.
If you are not sure what the site name is when you get to step 3, you want to connect to (HearthatHome.homestead.com). Please let me know if you have any trouble going forward with this.

I think I need help connecting domain midohiolawncare.com to my new website molawn. I just created the site under username oldguy44, changed the DNS to Homestead's, and am now waiting for Homestead to complete the next step. Should I just wait or is there something else I need to do.

The domain pointing is completed. You now have full access to the domain settings in your account under the domains tab.

midohiolawncare.com gives me 404 error. I notice on the Domains page that all my other domains have Subdomain www defined, but this one doesn't. Did I mist something?

I will get this resolved. Is this the correct content you want to show? http://molawn.homestead-livepageview.com/index.html

The reason you did not see the sub domain option is due to it being connected to a new WebsiteBuilder site. However, I see you have already built a site in Sitebuilder and am converting it back. It should look similar to the others now and the 404 is resolved.
