I have a webpage, and the non-profit created their own website with a changed new name, can I point the (old) homestead domain to their new and different website name. Or is it better to change the index page - with a link to their new name?  While there are comments as to putting html on index page, all the directions for or what you need to do is missing, can anyone help?

Hello Sue5414

You can definitely point the domain to a new site. You would need to get in touch with them to get the IP address we would need to point the domain to.

Ok, when I checked today - www.mccallultrachallenge.org  does not show up at all - goes directly to a search...One time I got a login page (which I assume the new website gave me the wrong IP)  Can you check on your end to see why it doesn't show anything now.  I will double check the IP - and get back to you as well.

Yes I see the log in screen it goes to, so I would have to recommend calling them. We can see the domain is going somewhere, it just doesn't seem to be the correct place.

can you delete the repoint to ip until I can get a better one - I will post a redirection on the website its self for now.  Sorry for the trouble

Sure, I'll point it back to our IP.
