I have 2 domains, one has the link to edit nameservers, the second one that I use the most does not, do I just have to change it on the one and it covers both?  The one without the link to edit says "pointed domain", I guess that's why? What do I do?
The pointed domain I think is via godaddy, do I change the nameservers there instead?

jody0248, At this point Cloudflare will only fully work on Websitebuilder sites. All of your sites are Sitebuilder sites. We have requested so development work that will make it work on Sitebuilder, but it is not yet available.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled eBay and https.

As well as selling on my website, from time to time I sell on ebay. They need to have links https starting October because of changes with Chrome. I've been struggling trying to get this all sorted, so help me be clear....
If I migrate my site to cloudflare as explained in an article here, will the files then become secure https links? I only need my banner/logo really, so by migrating...will my logo will be secure and fine with ebay and Chrome?

this is confusing with moving replies, they are separate questions ? One is about links on ebay and other sites, the other is about nameservers.

All of my sites are not made on sitebuilder, I made a new one the other night with websitebuilder after reading the article here, and that's when I came across my question about domains (above).
So, why does only one show a link to edit nameservers, and my original question, do i change the one that says 'pointed domain' at godaddy?'
As for my other question about ebay, if I move the new website to cloudflare, will the image links from the site be https as well? It's going to be more than ebay that require https at some point.

Do you have a separate account? All 18 sites on this account are Sitebuilder sites. I see one created on Sept 29th, but it is a Sitebuilder site.

The answer to the nameserver question is that you change the nameservers at the domain host, so if it is at GoDaddy then you would need to do it there. On Websitebuilder the images are secured.

So how do you use website builder then? The newest site was not made with sitebuilder, I don't even have that installed yet on this new laptop. i used the 'edit' button on homestead

Log in to your Homestead account and start a new site. It will automatically take you to the new Websitebuilder and then the Edit site button will take you to the new editor.

If I create a new site with websitebuilder do I have to start from scratch or can I import the sitebuilder site or files?

You start from scratch as the two programs vary too much to simply move one to the other. The best way is to open the editor and your existing site in the browser. Then copy and paste content from old to new. Images and files will need to be imported in to the new program.
