When I point my domain name to a new website, that website takes on that domain name and address. The website I'm pointing away from reverts back to the homesteadcloud.com address, right? Would there be a way of changing the name? Like, lets say, dick.homesteadcloud.com to frank.homsteadcloud.com?

Correct, it does revert to the .homesteadcloud.com site name. If you want to change it, you can do so under Websites Manager in your Homestead account. Under the site, there will be the option to rename.

I want to point my domain name to my new square space site and keep the websitebuilder site as a catalogue. I can change the websitbuiler site's name but don't see an option to point the domain to the new site. Is there one?

ok, it's working. Great.
It's not secure though, http. I'm pulling up the homesteadcloud version as well, it's secure. ?.

I understand now why it wasn't coming up for me. I was trying to call it's address https. The site only comes up as insecure. How can I fix this?

I am working on this for you. When the DNS was reset it reset to the not secure. I am getting them updated now, but it could take some propagation time.
As for the indexing, it is in testing and will likely be released soon from the comments I see from the developers. I am trying to confirm that right now.

Sounds good. I have to leave soon. Instead of bringing in our wood and some other winter prep, I'm doing this stuff.
