I used the new Website Building Tools to create a new website. But I'd like to use the new site in place of the old. How can I delete the old site and replace it with the new relatively quickly and seamlessly?

Hello,

You can change the site association on your domain to the new site. Then, once the new site is up and running, you can delete the old site from your account. Here are instructions to change site association:

Please advise ...
*******************************

Domain can not be associated to the selected site.

The selected site already has a domain associated to it. WebsiteBuilder supports only 1 domain association for a site at a time. Please disassociate the existing domain and try again.

You most likely double clicked the submit button, which is typically what I see causes that issue. The domain has been associated to the Website Builder site and is working for me.
