My site is not secure and I don't know if it is built using Sitebuilder Plus or if it is using desktop sitebuilder. How do I check for this and how do I secure it?

Hello,

If you access your account to edit your website by logging in online, you are using Sitebuilder Plus and if you click on a program icon that is on your computers desktop, you use desktop. From the account it shows you use SiteBuilder Plus, you can apply a SSL with these instructions to show a secure site. https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/can-i-secure-my-homestead-website-with-https
I guess I'm not understanding how all this works. I followed the instructions, received the emails and verified my email address. I went with the free Cloudfare program for now. I received the email saying "Welcome to Cloudflare! Let's get started". In the emaiI where it says "What’s next? Tell us where you want to start:" I clicked on the performance icon. It shows "Global CDN Caching is automatically enabled". So that's all good but when I click on the "Minimize Turn on" button it redirects me to my Cloudflare account where I guess I'm supposed to find a dashboard with a speed tab to be able to minify by checking all the right boxes. But I'm not seeing anything that looks like a dashboard with the appropriate buttons to click on and the appropriate boxxes to check to make that happen. On the Configurations page I have agreed to the Data Processing Addendum and filled out the Edit your WHOIS contact info across all Cloudflare Registrar domains. The video for help was not helpful. If I can't see a dashboard with a speed tab how do I find that? This is far more complicated than I was prepared to deal with. I'm not an IT person and I don't understand all of the jargon used for this. I'm just an artist that wants an easy to edit website that is secure.

It may be easier to assist over the phone as we would need to access your cloud flare account to verify it is set up correctly. You are welcome to call in at 1800-710-1998 and an agent can walk through the steps with you to confirm all settings are correct.  This would be the quickest way to a solution.
