I have email and web hosting through Homestead. I would like to forward my primary url/website (https://www.eastcoastgateoperatorsinc.com/) to a new url (https://www.ecgateops.com) without affecting my email on homestead.

Is the best way to do this by:
1. Create a subdomain that points to the new url
2. Change the site association of the old/primary url to the new subdomain

Hello,

The best option for this is to create a new sub domain that points to the URL. First make sure your domain eastcoastgateoperatorsinc.com is connected to a Sitebuilder site, change the site association to any site the ends in .homestead.com. You will do this to see the sub domain option, then point it to  ecgateops.com with the sub domain url option.

Thank you. When I test by clicking on "View" in the subdomain options, it is taking me to a Page Not Found under my new url. Any idea as to why?

Instead of clicking view, select edit from the sub domain and add  ecgateops.com  to other url field.

After you do that, allow some time but you can then test it by going to the domain eastcoastgateoperatorsinc.com.
