Hello,

What specifically are you trying to change, the site url? The domain name or a page name?

There is not a way to edit an existing domain. In order to change the domain name you will need to register the new name you are looking to use.  https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/account-register-a-domain

does that mean that all the files of the website will move over--or would I have to rebuild the whole website?  it is a LOT of pages [which I pay extra for]

also, the website in question is a secondary website under my main practice account--I don't want to change that website or it's name

No, you will not lose any files or need to rebuild. If you want to attach a domain name to an existing site, you can change the site association after the domain registration is complete. You will not need to edit the site name.
