On my existing site, the homepage is "Index" while editing, but it shows as "Home" in the menu. On my new site it looks like I have to call it "Index," which I don't want to do...? Surely there's a way around this?

On any new sites, built in Website Builder, your Home page can be named what ever you want to name it, as long as you have that page checked to be the Home page. Only the older Sitebuilder sites need to have the Home page titled Index.

Thank you for your reply. I'm trying to figure out why my personalized URL gives me a Page Not Found error. My instructions say this:

"If you have a Homestead package, the main page of your website (your home page) must be named 'index' for your domain name to work. Once you have created and published your 'index' page, you will be able to view it atĀ www.redpeneditsbyblu.com."

Since I reluctantly renamed my homepage "index" in accordance with these instructions and the URL stillĀ leads to a Page Not Found error message, I'm calling customer service. Either I'm doing something wrong or their instructions are incorrect and misleading.

I'm glad you were able to get that resolved over the phone.
