There have been several posts regarding HTTPS and this is a subject I am trying to follow the progress (or future of) however the posts are always 'not available' (I trust because they have gone 'private'). 

So in planning and exploring my options for the new year, I will ask:  What might the future be for whole site 'https' in homestead? 

or

If I point my domain to BC (eliminating the 'store' sub-domain), will I then have access to the 'https' offered there in BC? or is that still unavailable because the domain is with HS? How does that work? (do not mind saying I am very unhappy with 'Stencil' themes as you have such limited (mostly non-existent) minor change ability (something as simple as 'print packing slip' and similar templates without loosing the automatic 'theme updates' capability (from what I understand/have been told) which as expected are plenty with the new platform (the updates seem to have conflicted with 'fixes' their engineers made to 'option sets' incorrectly working after the conversion and well it was just easier to delete them on the website than ask for them to be corrected again.

Should a new store platform be considered outside HS & BC, can the domain be move to them or only directed to the new site? and how does that work on my account?

So would love to hear what might be in the pipeline and what my options might be to move/direct the domain.

Thanks,

Mostly those topics are merged into another, but also, most of them are not related to Bigcommerce. At this time we are not allowed to offer SSL on Bigcommerce sites. We are speaking with them about enabling this option for our customers.

Thanks for the update Drew. Is there a way for HS to keep their BC customers informed of this progress?

Do you have an ETA on a solution for Sitebuilder sites? When you said you would announce that here I thought you meant on the question I posted which is why I was wondering why my post was closed.

I do not have an ETA, but they are trying to get it as quickly as possible.

I will create a new announcement when ready and link it to a topic that shows how to do it. If you follow the topic linked above, then you will get a notification when I update it, saying that it will now function with Sitebuilder sites.
