Remove your.custom.name container from the cms_index_index.xml file placed under Magento_Theme/layout/cms_index_index.xml with below content.

<referenceContainer name="your.custom.name" remove="1" />


Add below content in Magento_Theme/layout/cms_index_index.xml file.

<referenceContainer name="page.wrapper">
       <container name="your.custom.name" as="your-custom" htmlTag="div" before="page-footer"/>
<move element="main.content" destination="your.custom.name"/>

Hope this helps!!!

  • I've updated my answer, you can remove the class and id from the custom container with my updated code. Also, you can add your own custom class which is only used on the home page. For example: htmlClass="test" in the container tag. Please review.
