Hi,
I'm trying to point my domain to a revised website but I get the following error: "Domain can not be associated to the selected site.
The selected site already has a domain associated to it. WebsiteBuilder supports only 1 domain association for a site at a time. Please disassociate the existing domain and try again."
Couldn't figure out how to do that and didn't find anything in the help database that worked. I'd appreciate any guidance.
Thanks

Hello,

To disconnect an existing domain you will want to change the site association for that domain. Then do the same for the domain you are trying to attach, connecting it to the desired site.
What domain are you attaching?

Thanks for replying. I'm trying to point my domain www.stonelakespta.com to my website www.stonelakespta.homesteadcloud.com. When I use the change site association option I get the error message saying the site already has a domain associated to it and I need to disassociate the existing domain first.

Thank you. That domain was the one already attached to it. Weird I know but the issue was that the domain didn't fully override the site url. I went ahead and got it connect for you though using these instructions. https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/fixing-the-website-builder-404-error 
You'll be good going forward.
