I would prefer to continue using Intuit SiteBuilder, rather than switching to Homestead Website Builder.  Is that possible?

Hi Bob, I work with Sitebuider Desktop and I am continuing adding websites. There are so many people working with Sitebuilder Desktop version it would be suicide for Homestead to get rid of

You may continue updating your current websites with the older builders, however all new websites will be created under the new Website Builder editor.

Are you serious? We don't have to switch if we don't want to????  (Todd, I think you're about to make my day)

Felicia4138, you can continue to edit your existing websites with the older builders, but as soon as you go to create a new site, it will not be with the old builder.

Hi Todd H, Please clarify your statement " but as soon as you go to create a new site, it will not be with the old builder". Did you mean  logging in as a new account ?
Because I expect to build new site in my account which is with Sitebuilder Desk Top.

Todd, If I decide to create a new site with new builder, am I required to pay for the new site as an 'add-on' at $24/year rate? --Once my new site is completed, I will want the original site to be removed.  How does that work price wise?

I answered at your other post, but if you are ready to start a new site, we can add that addon to your account, and when you are ready to remove the website, we can remove it and downgrade your account and prorate the difference back to you.

And of course the new website builder is down for the entire new years weekend plus Monday, so I'm stuck twiddling my thumbs.

E Douglas6374, the new builder was up and running all weekend, but there is a problem on your second site. The site was created before the new builder was available, but for some reason shows as a new builder site. I am not sure what is happening there, but you should be able to create a new site and it will be set to the new builder. If you want Sitebuilder for the second site, I can convert it so that Sitebuilder will work
