I was a little to quick to name my website a few weeks back.  I now know we need a different name. How do i go about changing the website name? Is it under the rename, Please enter the domain name you want below: then select the one you want, pay the fees and then this site will be changed from preownedvehicleexpo to a new name that we select?  How long dose it take to do this? thanks

Are you wanting to register a different domain name to attach to your website? If that is the case, proceed to your Domains page and register the new domain. Domain registration takes about a day to process, then you should be able to attach that domain to your website.

Inside of your Homestead account, go to Websites Manager, and underneath edit site click More, then Rename this site. You can rename the site here. If you want to attach a different domain name, that is a little different.

that is what i did do.    I thought it was a simple question guess i was wrong. I totally redid my website preownedvehicleexpo.com and that name is not appropriate for it any more. So in website manager, beside the address of http://www.preownedvehicleexpo.com/ it has rename, so I thought that was an easy step and I followed the directions. Nothing has happened and the new name shows up under a new domain maritimetradeshows.com  All I wanted to do is rename the existing website address http://www.preownedvehicleexpo.com/  to the new name which is maritimetradeshows.com

this is not what i want I already have the site called preownedvehicleexpo.com I want it to be http://www.maritimetradeshows.com

You are renaming your site mmaritimebloom. Your site's new name will be maritimetradeshows and your new Web address is: http://www.preownedvehicleexpo.com/

if you go to http://www.preownedvehicleexpo.com/ you will see that it has nothing to do with vehicles and at the top it says Maritime Recreation & Leisure Show hence that is why we need to rename it to maritimetradeshows.com
