This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: How can I start another website?

I would like to try/test out new templates using the Site Builder Plus(old version does not have the "newer templates" apparently), but keep the old(very) site AND keep the same domain name while I do all of this/make a final decision/actually build the new one if i choose to. 

Any chance I can do this w/o deleting everything. Scared to go this route without creating a huge mess!

Hi Bill5099,

In order to see the new templates we have to disable the old desktop Sitebuilder from your account. You will be able to edit the old site, but only in Sitebuilder Plus. If that is ok, then I can make the switch for you. Do you ever use the desktop Sitebuilder any longer?

Actually, I have both versions enabled but I ONLY use "Desktop"-AND i can see the new templates. I am simply terrified to try the "Plus" version b/c I seriously don't have the time for huge problems. (I did try PLUS for a minute or two and quickly realized that I did not like how it was changing the format of my site so i put it aside for later)

Please do not touch ANYTHING. lolz Keep it JUST the way it is, ok? i will absolutely lose it! 

All I really want is to be able to build a new site without destroying the old one in the process. How can I do that? Can I build a new site and then transfer the old domain (with your help) when its all done?

Don't worry. I always make very sure before I change anything. Your account will be left alone.
