I have purchased a new site and need it to be associated to a different site name, how do I purchase additional associated names/domains... or what is it that I need to do??? Right now both sites on my account is associated to one domain and I want them to be independent of each other if that makes sense

Hello,

You can purchase a new domain name by going to the domains tab in your account and selecting get a new domain https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/account-register-a-domain.
Once you have registered the domain you want to use, you can use these instructions to associate that domain with any website on your account https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/how_can_i_switch_my_domain_to_a_new_site_i_built

So how do I get the new domain to be associated to itself instead of another domain on my account?

You have to create a new site for each domain before you purchase it, to prevent your new domain from associating to an existing one.

how do you do that? As I have a new site and I need it associated to itself... shouldn't it be a step prior to purchasing the site where we create the association first? This would make it easier.

If you already have the domain, first you create the new site, then attach the domain to the site.

What does not work? I am seeing 4 domains on your account and 3 websites. You will need to create a 4th site to connect to the 4th domain to if you want them all to have their own website.

You have reached the limit for the number of sites in your current package. I can add 2 more sites for $2 per month, is this okay?

I have already purchased the site but I am unable to create a new site association I only have access to associate to the sites that are currently on my account. I need to add a new association to my account.

You will want to create the site, then it will allow you to associate the domain to it.
