Some of you might come across the error that can happen with Website Builder sites. It looks like this:

If you see this, have no fear. This is an easy fix.

Step 1: Log out of Website Builder. Everywhere. This fix will not work if the builder is still open anywhere.

Step 2: Log into your Homestead account at  and click on Websites Manager

Step 3: Choose the site that is experiencing the error from your list of sites (if you have more than one) and click "Rename"

Step 4: Click the yellow button that says "Check Availability", then click "Save"

Step 5: Go re-publish and enjoy your functional published site!

Getting below error when trying to download site builder.  Want to start updating my website and am not able to download the builder to do so.  What is the fix for this?

404 - File or directory not found.

The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

Unfortunately, the download for Sitebuilder Desktop is broken. We are looking to see if we'll be able to fix it, but as of right now, you would need to use Sitebuilder Plus to edit your website.
