i can't figure out how to insert the html code into my new website, using the new homestead site builder. it gives me an html imbed button, but i can't insert into the page properties like the old sitebuilder. I need to do this to get my site verified by google.???????

The way the HTML box is made, this will probably not work. When verifying with Google, select the alternate methods, then domain provider. From the list select other. Google will give you a TXT record. Log into Homestead and go to the domains tab and then Advanced DNS settings. You can click edit and add the TXT record at the bottom.

Yes. @ goes on the left box, then the string in the right box.
