I added a Domain name because I wanted it to point to my new mobile friendly site. I'm not happy your computer program automatically pointed it to the home page on my regular computer site. I did not want my home page renamed. You advertised getting a Domain name in the same square as making a mobile friendly site. How was I to know you would point domain name to established site. mobile friendly site, is the one that needs domain name help. I have a similar domain name from go daddy already pointing to a page in the middle of my regular site. I don't want 2 domain names going to same site.

Hello,

You can connect the domain to the desired website by changing the site association  under the domains tab.

Followed your directions. Domain name, now points to "file not found" error. Warning box had popped up and said domain name already used, could not be used for a second site, when I was changing the site association.

Well it worked. Are you really working on Christmas Eve? or is this a canned message, robot directed reply? If so, Thank you and Merry Christmas. If you are one of those other things, then @#$%^&. Once several years ago, when my site builder wasn't working for me, I called the main number and got a non-reply, told me to put in extension number. So I put in my favorite number, got someone's voice mail. Low and behold on Monday, I got a phone reply from guy who said I left the strangest message on the Boss's voice mail. You must realize I was rather ticked at the time. He fixed it all for me, upgraded my site without increase in price. I've been a good girl since, and haven't left messages on unknown extension numbers.

Perfect, glad it helped! We are in the office today but will be off tomorrow. Merry Christmas to you as well and stay safe around those unknown systems. I hope all is well now and happy holidays.
