Hello,

The website is built in WebsiteBuilder. To apply an SSL use the instructions in this article. https://community.homestead.com/conversations/websitebuilder/websitebuilder-ssl/5f2a9b3158180958845dab29

why do I have to do this now?  I have had this domain for like 15 years.  Why does this come up at this time?

There are 12 lines under this domain in A Record--do I update all of them?

It used to only be required for websites that were collecting payments or personal information but Google and other browsers have recently required all domains have an SSL applied to show the site is secured. Otherwise, there will be a message stating the site is not secured/safe.

Not all A records need to be changed, only the @ and www need to be updated to the generated ip address.

After I updated it now says Changing your 'www' A Record will make your Homestead website or store inaccessible! Please verify that this action is desired before confirming.
