I wish to point a domain name with the suffix .co.uk to a website that I'm building, however the website does not appear in the section 'Manage Your Website Domains'
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Steve

Hello,

Homestead cannot host a pointed domain with the suffix.co.uk as it is unsupported by our system. If you would like, you can point that domain to the site url (sitename.homesteadcloud.com) to connect to the site.

Hi Michelle

Thanks for your reply, although I am still a little confused. I want my domain name with the .co.uk suffix to appear in the website address bar when people see my site. How do I do this?
Referring back to my previous question......my website still does not appear in 'Manage Your Website Domains', what is the reason for this.
Kind regards
Steve

Homestead would not be able to have that domain displayed with the site URL point unfortunately and I wouldn't have a recommendation on how to get that done. Your websites are under the websites manager tab, it would not be under Manage Your Website Domains since there is not a domain name currently attached.

Michelle,
Just to be absolutely clear, I have a website that is under construction with Homestead Website Builder, I live and operate in the UK where the majority of domain names have the suffix .co.uk and are you telling me that I cannot use the domain name which I have aquired 'www.allthingstenerife.co.uk'?
All the advice I read regarding pointing domain names, changing site association etc, tells me to do this within the 'Manage Your Website Domains' but my site does not appear there, so that is not possible for me!!
Before I waste any more time building my website, could you please clarify this for me, is there absolutely no way I can use this domain name? Have I completely wasted my time with Homestead?

Regards
Steve

You can try to point the domain allthingstenerife.co.uk to the site url from the registrar to connect to the site but it will show sitename.homesteadcloud in the url when someone uses the domain. Those instructions are correct for supported domain TLDs which do not include second level TLDs (.co.uk). There is not a way to add that domain name to your Homestead account to use allthingstenerife.co.uk.
