How long does it take for a new site to appear when switching the domain pointer? It has been hours and still seeing a blank page saying this site is hosted by Intuit. I am losing business.

Good morning,

It looks like the pointing is done fine, but you deleted the index page which is the default page for the site. It looks like you named a page home, so if you rename that index, then your site should come back. You will need to also update any links you have that go to home.html, to point to index.html.

Thanks

Drew

Hello Drew,

I wondered about that-- now I don't know if I went to bed too late, but how do I get into the url to change the name of the home page-- I am looking and looking, but cannot find it. Thanks.

You will rename home to index.

Thanks

Drew

This does not work-- when I go to edit site, the editing frame appears, but there is no site to edit-- just a blank space.

Sorry, are you using the downloaded Sitebuilder?

Yes and earlier today I found a small window which should have allowed me to edit- a window very much the same as the editing frame you linked me to, but when I clicked on the name change button, it would not press down-- and yes, I had the "home" page checked off within the options.

Use the file manager on the left side to find the home page. Click on it to edit and then go to the file menu and then Save As.
