11/4/16  Rate Increase of 38.7 % ?  Are you kidding me ? 

Think about it, what if your  gas, insurance, cell phone, ISP whatever went up 38.7%  ?   What would be your likely response ?

We have increased the package price by $2/month. Unfortunately, periodic prices increases are necessary.

All accounts were increased by $2/month. The percentage is higher for you because you had the least expensive package. $61.99 to $85.99 per years is a $24 increase for the year. Unfortunately, rising costs required the increase.

Paul8002, some changes are coming. The first is a new website builder. It has responsive templates and drop down menus, as well as a host of other features that our customers have been requesting for a long time.

Excuse my dropping in unannounced, but will the new website builder be compatible with Macs?

Gee, I can't even get the shipping to work as I just had someone walk away and haven't even figured out Homestead yet and saw this. Wonderful. I just paid her hundreds of dollars to set up my webpage and now I read this.

This will not affect the Store at all. You can still use your Sitebuilder site as is. The new builder simply gives you another option if you desire.
