Inside sharepoint online my public website homepage is at http://www.mydomain.co.uk/Pages/default.aspx
Until yesterday my domain forwarded to this location.
Yesterday I paid for the Office365 monthly subscription.
Today my domain now forwards to http://www.mydomain.co.uk/SitePages/Home.aspx
Why has it changed and what do I do to change it back again?
Hi David Turner,
This is Jonis from Microsoft Online SharePoint Support.
There is absolutely no site, website or DNS transition that occurs when you agree to purchase a trail subscription plan. From your post it sounds like your public facing website home page got moved or renamed, as the link to the home page http://<YourDomain>/pages/default.aspx now points at the landing page of your site collection http://<YourDomain>/SitePages/Home.aspx.
Before we attempt to resolve this, let us determine what happen. What happens if you attempt to edit your website by navigating to the following URL: http://<YourDomain>.sharepoint.com/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx? If you can get to that location, make sure you can edit your public facing website by selecting Member Login.
Please reply to this post with your results as I will continue to monitor this thread for a few days and will reply to any additional posts or questions.

Hi Jonis, thanks for the reply.
The link http://<YourDomain>.sharepoint.com/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx? doesn't reach a page but thats more because http://<YourDomain>.sharepoint.com isn't right.
http://<YourDomain>/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx? does take me to the folder containing my original, correct, website home page. However this home page isn't the one that gets shown when you navigate to my domain.
Navigating to the website area using the navigation bar all works fine. I can navigate to my homepage, edit the site, publish the site. This is all fine. The problem is that my domain doesn't navigate to the website as published. Instead it navigates to http://<yourdomain>/SitePages/Home.aspx
My guess is that the domain should forward to the website area under "web pages" on the nav pane. Instead it forwards to the sharepint "site pages" area under libraries so it is this redirection that has somehow changed and needs changing back.
