I would like to start a new website using the same original address as before - homestead.com, instead of "cloud"  I went to start a new website but could only see the now kind, under cloud.com.  How can I get the old traditional homestead.com website, same as the rest.

All new sites are created using the new Websitebuilder program. Have you tried it? Unfortunately, those sites are hosted differently, so you do have the homesteadcloud address, but the site you create will look much more modern.

Drew,
I don't have cloud. I try not to get involved with these systems. So, no, I haven't tried it. And I have no interest in looking modern or having a web site that looks modern. "Progress" is sometimes overrated.  But I did manage to change the name of one of my older web sites that has been in a state of transition for a few years, so no longer functional. I changed the name and got the new one going. 

My concern now is how Homestead is going to deal with the older type websites that I have had up for 15 years or more. will they be affected in some way, such as not being able to make changes in them.

Old sites continue to work, and you can edit them using Sitebuilder. If you create a new site, it will be assigned to Websitebuilder. Websitebuilder is the direction Homestead is moving, but we are not disrupting the old sites in any way.

Well I hope this works for you. One other time you made drastic changes and your system went haywire. I still liked the original system better.
