We hope you’re enjoying online success with your Homestead website!
Now, we have some BIG news to share that will make your site even more successful...

We’ve been listening to your feedback, and are pleased to introduce Homestead Website Builder, a powerful new platform that delivers everything you need for your website:

Drop Down Menus & Mobile Responsiveness


    Modern Templates
    Modern/Advanced Image Sliders
    Interactive Blog Features
    Responsive Web Design

While templates from your site will not migrate to the new builder, this will be your opportunity to create an updated site with best-in-class functionality and your choice of thousands of mobile-friendly designs.

While we continue to do all that’s possible to maintain low fees, this list of all-inclusive service improvements necessitates a small $2/month increase. Payments processed on or after November 3, 2016 will reflect this updated pricing.

Warm website wishes,
The Homestead Team

Your existing sites will not be affected and you will continue to be able to use Sitebuilder desktop and Sitebuilder Plus for those sites. If you wish to use the new Homestead Website Builder then you will need to rebuild the site. Unfortunately there is just too large a difference in the change to be able to convert the old fixed templates to new responsive ones.
