We are trying to re-engage with our nonprofit's Homestead account, which was set up by others several years ago. We see that some of our domain settings reflect the name of a previous volunteer. In the Domain Center, our site is identified as "hstrial-name" (where "name" is a person's name). And in Subdomain setting, www has an arrow pointing to "hstrial-name." If we click on Change Site Association, it says our domain "is currently pointing to the website hstrial-name," and it provides a box where we change this setting, which says "Make domain point to hstrial-name.homestead.com." We do not understand these settings. Must we have our domain "point to" something? If we change our site's name and/or remove the "subdomain," will it remove our website?  Thanks for any help you can provide.

That URL is not really important as you have a domain name, but if you want to change it, you may. Go to the websites manager page and select the more link and rename site. Give it any name you like, but not with any dots(.) in it. The system will alert you if it isn't available.
