Website Builder, Templates and Starting from Scratch

I've been trying for days, and giving up each time because it hasn't been that critical, to update one of my web pages. I was actually in there maybe 3 or 4 weeks ago, no problem. But the desktop Sitebuilder won't even load up, and after poking around this forum for several hours today, I'm about to uninstall it.

Also, I got two emails on August 14th saying I need get SSL certs for my site cuz it'll be shown as unsecure via Google Chrome (no mention of any OTHER browsers) from now on until I do. So, here I am today, trying to figure out what the heck is going on!

Oh, and I have to mention, I have not had ANY emails from Homestead notifying me that there will be/has been a change to how we now build our websites. Nothing to tell me to get ready to be using the NEW Website Builder IN THE CLOUD. Nothing to warn me I have so many days until the change takes place. NOTHING. I would have LOVED some forewarning so I could have been prepped and ready to go.

That said, I'm good with working in the cloud. Makes it easier so I don't have to constantly upgrade my software. So kudos for that.

What I DON'T like is that I cannot migrate my websites seamlessly to the new builder. THAT SUCKS! Thankfully, my sites are kind of smallish and easy to recreate and I only have 2 to do. (I feel actual pain for the guy I saw that said he had over 100 sites to fix. That must be a freaking nightmare.)

The other thing...WHY is there not a BLANK template to start from? I get that lots of people dig using templates (and I actually see one I might try), but give us back the BLANK TEMPLATE, PLEASE.

I think that's it for now. But I'm sure I'll be back because I have a feeling this isn't going to go smoothly. :(
