About 11 months ago I was talking with Drew N. on here.  I'm not sure how to contact him again but I would like his help.  

I would like to stop using the desktop site builder and switch to whatever the newest online is called.  He said he could move my files because when I went to see the online version it was a really one version of my site.

Here is a quote from Drew "I can get that fixed for you. I can get the published copy copied into the editor folder for Sitebuilder Plus. I just need for you to let me know when you have all your desktop updates published and don't need to make new edits for a little while."


Can I skip over Sitebuilder Plus and go right to the newest one I got an e-mail about called Homestead Websitebuilder?

Thanks
Mike

Hello Michael9306
What Drew was referring to was getting your published site to display in Sitebuilder Plus. You can definitely use our newest builder, Website Builder, but it is a completely different program from Sitebuilder Plus or Sitebuilder Desktop, so we cannot transfer files or your site into this builder. Your site would have to be rebuilt. The easiest way to do this would be to add a new site through Websites Manager in your homestead.com account, give it a site name that is slightly different than your current name, then choose design. Once you choose a template, you can start building. I would recommend you open your old site in another tab so you can easily reference the old site for copying text and downloading pictures. Let me know if you need any help!

Thanks for the reply.  Can the new site be named the old domain name at some point or do I have to have two sites?   Could I abandon the old site and give the new one the old domain name?

Yes, absolutely. Once you are done building the new site, we can change the domain name association to point to the new site, and delete the old one.

Thanks.  That is what I will try them.
