I really need to rebuild my site on the new software to get a secure site?  I might as well migrate to a new company.

bess1921, you do not need to rebuild the site. If you use the online Sitebuilder Plus, you can use https. If you wanted a new site, you can also try rebuilding using our new Websitebuilder. We are still working on Sitebuilder desktop and https, but your existing site can be secured.

I am using SiteBuilder, not Sitebuilder Plus.  The tech guy told me that to migrate to SiteBuilder Plus, I need to install it then rebuild my entire site.

Sitebuilder Plus will open and edit the Sitebuilder desktop site. No installation necessary, it works through your browser. Websitebuilder is our newest program and you would need to rebuild your site from scratch to use it, but there is still no installation. If you log into your Homestead account and click on the Websites manager page, you will see an edit site button. On the right side of that button, you will see an arrow. If you click it, then you will be presented a menu. One option is Edit with Sitebuilder Plus.

The method of securing the site will work on both Sitebuilder Plus and Websitebuilder sites. Hopefully soon it will work on desktop too, but I don't have details.
