WE are a trade show company and have combined 2 of our shows together therefor no need for 2 separate websites. Is there away when they go to the cottage show website it would take them to our Cottage & Log Home Website?

Hello,

So just to make sure I understand, you want both domain names to point to the Cottage & Log Home Website?

You cannot point one website to another. You can point a domain to another domain or to another website. Which one are you trying to do?

OK, perfect. Thank you. I can definitely get that set up for you. In order for this to work, we need to control your DNS, so I will need to point your nameservers back to Homestead.

I'm sorry, but both domains are working on my end. What are you seeing on your end that it is not working? It is possible that it is caching, can you try clearing your cache or using a different browser?

i have tried that and so have others and it keeps coming up with Secure Connection Failed

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

    The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
    Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

Ok, while I still can't replicate this issue, I'm going to try to fix what is happening on your end by setting the nameservers for bcloghomeshow.com back to Homestead so we can get your site secure through our system. The only thing I can think of is that the Cloudflare SSL is causing an issue on some browsers because it doesn't like the pointing.

ok well if we at least put it back to the cottage show than that is a big help for now.

I would strongly advise against that. It is working in any computer that has not pulled up your site before that I test. If we switch it back, you could have to deal with this when you want to point it again. Lets work to figure out the issue now. Can you provide me information like what browser and operating system is being used by the people who are experiencing this issue?

Well, I can see that you have now pointed the site back to the Website Builder site. The site was working on my computer, my laptop, my phone, and my coworkers computer in another state. I honestly believe it was caching for people who had visited your site previously. Now, it is in propagation again because the DNS had to be changed with the pointing you did.
Honestly, I would recommend calling in at this point. If you are going to make changes on your end and I am trying to make changes on my end, it is just going to mess the site up.

Hi Elyzabeth, it wasn't working on any of our sites and asked someone who has never been there to check it out. You are right after that i went in and tried to change it back with little to no knowledge of what i was doing, but if it's not working and we can't get on it and potential exhibitors who have been there can't get on...well that is not good for my business. So in saying all this where is it at now. It don't even show up when you google bc cottage show.
