I created a second website on my account and would like to switch my domain to that one. Can I do this without deleting my original design?

Here's how you can associate your domain with another website on your account.

  1. Click Domains link in the left navigation menu.

  2. Scroll down until you see your domain name and click Change Site Association.



  3. Choose the website you'd like your domain name to point to using the drop-down menu.


  4. Click Save to confirm the change. It may take some time for this change to reflect.

    **If the site you are switching to is built in Website Builder**

  5. Click Websites Manager, choose the site you are working with, click Edit Site, and Publish.

    *IF YOU GET A 404 ERROR on your published site, please follow the instructions in this article to fix this:
