Some of you might come across the error that can happen with Website Builder sites. It looks like this:

If you see this, have no fear. This is an easy fix.

Step 1: Log out of Website Builder. Everywhere. This fix will not work if the builder is still open anywhere.

Step 2: Log into your Homestead account at  and click on Websites Manager

Step 3: Choose the site that is experiencing the error from your list of sites (if you have more than one) and click "Rename"

Step 4: Type a "1" at the end of your site name. (You can then, immediately, delete the "1" if you prefer that to not be in your site name. It doesn't matter), click the yellow button that says "Check Availability", then click "Save"

Step 5: Go re-publish and enjoy your functional published site!
