I'm new to homestead. I want to update a website that has been developed by somebody else through homestead with .nl but when i'm asked to add an existing domain, I can only add domains with extension it doesn't show up on the list. .com, .org, .biz etc. I can't use .nl

how do I do that ?

Thanks for any advice

You can provide us the domain name. We can add the point for you from the back end as long as it only had 1 dot in it. xxxxxx.nl is fine, but we can't use xxxxx.com.nl or something like that. If you provide the domain name and your site name, I can add it for you. You would then need to update your DNS. Do you have existing email at the domain or will you use Homestead email or no email? If you would not have email or will use Homestead, then change your nameservers to the following:

ns1.mdnsservice.com
ns2.mdnsservice.com
ns3.mdnsservice.com

If you have existing email, then we will need to proved you with some DNS records to update at the domain host.
