If I decide to use the updated Website Builder in building another website besides my current website. How does that work-using the same domain? I created my current site thru "intuit" in yr. 2012. (subsequently, "Homestead") I want to keep content and features I have now the same. Is that possible? Two more questions: Does doing so change the current one? And also, does the charge go up for the upgrade? ( I've used the desktop all along.)

Hello,

Creating a site in the new builder will not affect any of your current websites. However, you can always connect your same domain name to the new site when you are ready by changing the site association.You can create this site to have all the same content by copying and pasting the text and re-uploading the images to the new software.  Also, there is no additional charge to use the new builder, you can add a new site and get started.

I have an additional question, Michelle, in regard to creating a website in WebsiteBuilder. If, perhaps, I am not satisfied with the site that I create, because of some technical problem, or I am not satisfied with how it appears-can I delete it and go back to my original? Also, is this upgrade required to learn more of its tools, which may be totally different from what I am more used to using in SiteBuilder?

Hello,

You can definitely delete the new site and keep your original site. The upgrade does require learning where everything is within the Website Builder but it is still template based where you can drag and drop elements where you would like them placed. We do have video tutorials as well.
