It was working and now it won't show up under tnhtradeshows.com

I tired to re-point it but didn't work I have 2 domains

this is what i am getting for message

Domain can not be associated to the selected site.

The selected site already has a domain associated to it. WebsiteBuilder supports only 1 domain association for a site at a time. Please disassociate the existing domain and try again.

You registered another domain name on the existing site. You must create the new site before you register a new domain.
I have fixed it, but if you are going to create a new site. Create the site first, then make sure the new site is selected from the Websites manager drop down and proceed to the domains tab and register the new domain.

I don't understand what step i am missing. I wanted to rename tnhtradeshows.com to bcloghomeshow.com. In website manager it says under the more drope down little arrow Rename this site:

Option B: Your Own Personalized Domain Name


Please enter the domain name you want below:
so now that is done and it didn't rename it, it created a new website.  all i wanted was to rename.  I know its me and somehow there is a step i don't see.

You do not use the rename for the domain name. The rename option simply renames the folder that contains your site files on the server. You already have the domain name.


You may only associate 1 domain to a Websitebuilder site, so as long as tnhtradeshows.com is associated to the site, you can't add bcloghomeshow.com to that site. Do you want both to bring up the same site? are they different sites? Do you want to delete tnhtradeshows.com?

Create a new site. Call it anything you want, just without .com or any other extension. Then change the site association of tnhtradeshows.com to the new blank site. Then change the association of bctradeshow.com to the site you just moved tnhtradeshows.com from. This will replace tnhtradeshows.com with bctradeshow.com. It can take up to 30 minutes or so.
