This is because your domain associated to the first site you built because the new site wasn't created yet. You just have to change the site association on that domain to your new site:
Your directions say: “Here's how you can associate your domain with another website on your account. Click Domains link in the left navigation menu. Scroll down until you see your domain name and click Change Site Association. Choose the website you'd like your domain name to point to using the drop-down menu.”
However, the website I'd like my domain name to point to (lessonplanondemand.com) is not there. Instead it says lessonplanondemand.homesteadcloud.com, which I already tried, and I got a 404 ERROR.
Your directions say: “IF YOU GET A 404 ERROR on your published site, please follow
the instructions in this article to fix this:
But your directions in the article say: “If the site you are switching to is built in Website Builder** Click Websites Manager, choose the site you are working with, click Edit Site, and Publish.”
However, if you look at the attached image you will see that THERE IS NO EDIT SITE OR PUBLISH. There is only RENAME.
Now I am no longer getting a 404 ERROR, but I instead got a message saying the page could not be found...
...and then saying that the site cannot be reached:
I already did all of this on my own yesterday—without your directions—an went through all of the very same things before.Do I simply need to come back in an hour and the site WILL be reached? Is there some kind of a delay? If not, what am I still doing wrong?
One last image...
Wait! Are you saying that my URL will end in .homestead.com or .homesteadcloud.com regardless? If that’s the case I am DEFINITELY taking my domain name elsewhere. I need my URL to be lessonplanondemand.com period—nothing else.
