Hi, I use a specific subdomain for something, have been using the same subdomain for years and don't want to change it. All I wanted to do was update it using websitebuilder. Is it possible to point my old subdomain (created with the old sitebuilder) to the new website I created (using websitebuilder)?

No. The two programs are not compatible.

The editors are incompatible, but can you provide the domain name and subdomain names so I can take a look at your setup? Something might be possible, but I will need to look and see.

Hello,

You can definitely point business.treasureourcoast.com to another site on your account. You would need to log into your Homestead account, click on the Domains tab and find that domain name from the list. You will see the subdomains under that and you just need to click "Edit" to the right of the business. subdomain. It will then give you choices of where to point it. Choose the site you want to point it to.

Thanks Elyzabeth. That's what I did originally, and it works for changing the site association, but when I pointed the sitebuilder business.treas..... subdomain to the websitebuilder domain it didnt work. It gives a "Sorry, the page you’re looking for can’t be found." error. It only worked when pointing to an actual domain, not subdomain.

Ah, that might be because of the different DNS the newer builder requires. The only way would be to point that subdomain to the URL of the site name.

I decided to just make things simple and buy another domain.
