I no longer need some subdomains, but only choices are edit or view. How do I delete them?

You can use Domain > Advanced DNS Settings.

It says,
"Domain Manager > Edit Advanced DNSAdvanced DNS Editing Unavailable
Sorry, you cannot edit your advanced DNS settings for this domain here because your domain is not using Homestead nameservers. If you wish to edit your advanced DNS settings, please go to your domain provider and edit them there, or change your domain nameservers to Homestead nameservers."

I can edit at my domain provider, but Homestead still shows its list of subdomains, using up my allotment.

You'll need to use your Domain Name provider. Do you know them? What is your Domain name. Use Whois to find your provider:

Which one are you trying to delete specifically so I can take a closer look?

all the subdomains at co2list.com: the, xls, maps, etc. I would keep the subdomains at CO2list.org

Find the subdomain you want to remove, click Edit, then click Delete, then confirm by clicking Delete.

thanks, that worked, except www, which does not show a "delete" button

While we cannot delete the WWW subdomain, you can add a url for it to redirect next to the "Other URL:" option if you wanted, so when this domain is visited, it will redirect to what URL was manually added.

A couple of hours ago, I redirected the overall site and the www subdomain to c02.homestead.com (with zero), but it still goes to co2.homestead.com (with oh). Perhaps it needs more time.
