From what I have been reading, the new Website Builder is slowly being added to all of the accounts.  WHEN and HOW will you know that the Builder has now been added to your account so that you can proceed to check it out?

It should be on all accounts right now. You must create a new site to use it. It will not work on old Sitebuilder sites unfortunately.

Ken, log in to your Homestead account. Choose Website Manager from the left hand menu.  Click on Add a New Site (upper right). Set up a new site calling it whatever you want, i.e. Practice. That site would be titled Practice.homesteadcloud.com  You can then go through the templates until you find one you want. Select it and you can begin to learn how this program works.

We replied in the other topic to this question. The starter package only allows for 1 website. To see that link an upgrade need to be done.

Ken if you are on the Website Manager page then the "Add a New Site" option is at the top upper right of the page.

No Offense People.............. but couldn't Homestead have sent out an email to everyone letting them know the new tool was up and running?  This is not some minor league news event......... this is HUGE and I've been waiting for months to hear about its release in order to begin our new site. Considering it's December and the last I heard it was going to be available first of the year....... I thought I'd check in to see if I could find its upcoming release date............... simply to find its up and running. Yes, I'm a bit frustrated.

I am sorry and will pass your feelings on to the management team. I hope you like trying it out though.

Thank You. Already in a tinkering with it. Like what I see and feels a bit like SquareSpace but less complicated.

Felicia, Drew may be gone for the day so I'll give you the answer so you don't have to wait.
As long as you have a package that includes multiple sites there would be no extra charge for using the new builder.
If you only have the Starter package then you would need to upgrade and Drew or Todd can help you with that.

There isn't so far, but there are several posts about the new builder. Go to the top of this page and click on Categories, then find the Website Builder and click on it. You'll find some help there.
But don't hesitate to ask questions in here - we're all kind of in the same boat as far as trying to figure this new thing out, but some have dug deeper and figured things out so they are able to help.
