I have a number of older sites created under the Sitebuilder tool and now a new site using Website builder. I like the new tool so much better. Is there a way to convert older sites or somehow port them over the Website Builder?

No. There's no conversion method available. You'd need to build a new site.

Unfortunately, this is correct. There is just too much difference to be able to create any sort of import tool.

Hi Drew: I am in a similar situation. Based on your response, I built a new site using a template in the newer Websitebuilder. Now, how do I move my .com name and associated emails from the old site the was built in Sitebuilder to the new site made in Websitebuilder?

Changing site association is easy. It is an option on the domains tab. Here is a detailed topic. Since it is all on the same account, email doesn't need to move. It will be unaffected. Keep in mind, it may take up to 30 minutes for the new site to start coming up.
