I need help with site association. I want my site to point to freeentertainersbook.info not to the other sites on my account. How can I do that?

Hello,

I would have to create a domain holding site for you. Which domains are actually suppose to point to a site and which domains are going to do URL pointing?

freeentertainersbook.info and freeentertainersbook.com should be pointing to freeentertainersbook.com

A domain cannot be associated to itself. Right now, both of those domains are associated to the same site. Which website are both of those domains suppose to be pointing to?

Why not? tonyafisher.com is associated to tonyafisher.com. lilliebhill.com is associated to lilliebhill.com... I paid for freeentertainersbook.com and freeentertainersbook.info so why can't they be associated to freeentertainersbook.com?

No, the domain tonyafisher.com is associated to the site tonyafisher1.homesteadcloud.com.
The domain lilliebhill.com is associated to the site lilliebhill.homesteadcloud.com.
You do not have a third site, so I do not have anywhere to associate or point your other domain names.
As I said, a domain cannot be associated with itself. You will need to provide a location for me to point these domains. If you don't have one yet, you'll need to create one.

Log in to your Homestead account, click on Websites Manager, and choose "Add New Website". Give this a site name (not a domain name) and choose a design. Let me know when you have created this site so I can associate your domains.

OK, I have pointed the .info domain to the .com domain, which I can see you associated to the new site. Now you can just build the website.
