I would like to transfer my domain from Wix to Homestead. When i click on - Use a domain i already own it gives this error-This domain is already associated with a website account.

Any ideas on how to fix this ?  This is my website    www.cncsignmaker.com

Thanks in advance

Your domain is currently registered at Network Solutions and uses Wix nameservers. Do you have email on that domain? Do you want to bring up the old site on your Homestead account?

I can initiate the transfer if you have the code already. Would you like me to do that?

You should be getting an email in a while about approving the transfer.

You have not yet? I would have thought by now, but it can take a while sometimes.

It seems the registrar had an issue. They are working on their end. We will try to get this cleared up asap

It looks like you got the email and have begun the transfer. Is that correct?

 http://dscreationkshelden.homestead.com/about.html
instead of www.cncsignmaker.com/about.html  ??

Did you figure this out? or was it just a matter of time? the .homestead.com address is always valid as some sites do not use a domain. But the domain does appear to be working at this point.

Hi Drew,  Yes i think its working. I was just wondering why the url was showing 
 http://dscreationkshelden.homestead.com/about.html

It is a valid URL, and sometimes people link to that URL, which is not the best. If your menu is linked correctly, then it should now see the cncsignmaker.com URL and not the .homestead one.
