I have a site that was built with the old Sitebuilder, and see that the format is outdated, etc.  Also, all the problems with SSL.  So, I am creating a new site with Websitebuilder, from scratch.  My question is, how do I transfer my domain (chiemseecastle.com) to the new site once it is ready to go live?  With website builder the default is "****.homesteadcloud.com".  Obviously I need the address bar to read only "chiemseecastle.com".

Hello,

When you are ready to go live with your new site, follow these instructions to move your domain to be associated with the new site.

Thanks Elizabeth; but will this only “redirect” Chiemseecastle.com to Chiemsee.homesteadcloud.com, or will the new site and all its pages actually be chiemseecastle.com/**** after I redirect it?

The site will display with your domain name, not the .homesteadcloud.com site name
